Just under the far left of the Three Kings on the hill in the Boulder Gardens, there are two squairish boulders, this is the lower of the two. The landing has been improved with stacked rocks. This boulder offers unusually good slopers without the the "sandy" feel of other boulders.

Getting There 

Hike in to the boulder gardens straight up the hill towards "Unnamed" and than head slightly to the left. The Grit Block is slightly downhill and west of Unnamed.
