Description 

This is a huge granite rock with a strange lil house perched on it. Seems to be granite quartz mix like most of the boulders in this area, can be very slippery and ruff on the fingers but offers some good holds and interesting formations. Under the house is alot of old tires and some very tetnis looking rusted metal, some of which we moved some is more deeply embedded only is sketchy for one line we were attempting, the rest of the base is other rocks and beach. Mostly secluded with occasional atv's passing by presumedly to go clamming ?

Getting There 

From the picnic area head down to the beach and follow it north about 3 miles, you can't miss it! Be aware of the tide as it comes in pretty fast and will make your walk back alot more difficult and wet, it is still doable if you really must but we advise against it. Check the cook inlet tidal report for times of high and low tide.
