A great boulder with two exceptional sloper lines. Pleasantly close to the trailhead, too. In years past, access to this boulder would have been prohibited by water, since the landing is in the stream bed. As per usual with most of the boulders up here, the rock quality makes you weep with happiness (and longing... if only all of SB had rock like this). Folks may have climbed this in the past, but again, it would have been unclimbable due to water. One of the plus sides to the drought, I guess.

Getting There 

Here's the trailhead info:

The boulder is actually IN the stream bed about 200 feet up the trail. So you could just boulder-hop up the stream if you are in doubt.

A short, condensed, and full-on education in open-hand sloper shenanigans. One of the better of its kind in the canyon. Start low on big ledge, as per Prison Break. Climb straight up, hit some sloping crimp-dishes, then bump, shuffle, and negotiate your way up....[more]   Browse More Classics in California

Gunna have to get out here and freshen up my memory. I think I remember doing Tumbler a while ago, but don't think I ever did Prison Break. Sweet stone!
