This is the first big boulder on the left while walking up towards Higher Cathedral Rock.

Getting There 

From the parking turnout. Find a trail that takes you into the woods towards the Valley Loop Trail. Make a left onto the Valley Loop Trail until you see another faint trail that goes up the hill. It will either be right there or less than a minute away. Follow this trail for a few more minutes and bear left and you should see the Hex Boulder.

Does anybody know what the climb is called that starts on the jug for Ladder Detail but goes right past the fin to the sloper on the lip? Was at the bould and saw chalk, but it's not in the guide...
