This is a short stout wall/boulder. It stays in the shade almost all day. The rock is perfect and the climbing is much harder than it first appears!!!

Getting There 

From "Pirates Cove" just head north towards the "Tortuga Area" and keep looking to your right. From "Pirates Cove" this wall/block is only about 20-30 yards to the North. You can't miss it.
