This boulder has an obvious overhanging OW crack that faces NE. This crack is obvious as you come up the canyon as there is a tree right next to it. If you fall out of the crack at the top you could end up in the tree.

Getting There 

Hike up Rattlesnake Canyon past the waterfall area to where the canyon turns west. Hike up the canyon until below the crags on the north side that are south facing. This is "The Pyramid." The KD Boulder is on the right side of the wash and is identifiable by the 120 degree overhanging crack which goes from hands down low to OW at the top (crux). It is on the NE side.
