This tall rock sits in the back of the climbable rocks back in the trees behind the main rock with the prominent overhang.

This rock offers an interesting mix of granite on one side, and some pockety volcanic rock on the other.

As with most of the other rocks in the area, it is always in the shade, as it is hidden underneath a large section of trees.

Walking off the back is pretty easy, you might want to use a tree branch to help you down.

Getting There 

To reach this rock, go behind the main overhung rock which can be seen from the road into the trees. It is located on top of the pile, above most of the other rocks in the area. See the picture for a better view.
