Description 

One of the biggest and best granite blocks in the state with a variety of problems to offer.

Getting There 

Park in the day use parking area, then walk down the road into the camping area. Pass the first set of leantos, and continue until a driveway with a bathroom appears on your right. Stop even with the roadway and go directly into the woods on your left (level with the culvert). Two minutes of bushwhacking and you're there. Total approach is about ten minutes.
