This 12' boulder is about 300 feet away from the Lost Boulder, on the other side of the trail. As you approach you will be seeing the slabby side previously cleaned, but again completely covered with lichen. Around to the left the boulder steepens to just off vertical and it is not so fuzzy. Not quite the same quality as the Lost Boulder, but there are a few good routes on it so you can fill out your day.

Getting There 

Park and hike in just like you are going to the Lost Boulder. Maybe 50 feet before the Lost boulder break left off the trail and head into the woods a couple hundred feet.

On the steeper face start out in the middle with your hands on two sharp crystal holds. Work you feet up (I start out back stepping my left on a little knob so I can get my right on an angling edge), so you can reach up to the arete with your right. Do more footwork and maybe bump you right up to a not as good hold so you can reach high and left to a sloper. Top out straight up. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Rhode Island

I think this was also called the Chia Boulder for a while.
