This is a small granite block up at the Stone Tower. The boulder is not that tall, but it has some good moderate lines. A good place to warm up for some of the harder stuff in the area. Gets a lot of sun and would be a great, quick, winter hit.
Follow the same directions as for The Stone Tower Boulder. When you arrive at the stone tower, walk behind it you will see a trail in front of you slighlty to the left. The Egg is less than a minute down this trail.
