The obvious, large boulder with a huge roof cut into the east face. You know your there if there is a deer carcass in the cave with you on the right side... don't worry it doesn't smell or take away from the problems.

Getting There 

Follow the RR trail past Millennium Boulder and west up the hill to the obvious, huge boulder with a roof cutting into the east face.
