Description 

A cool little area high in Icicle, The Machine Gun holds five distinct problems, and room for traverses, eliminates, and play. It's a fun warm up spot, or a great place to spend a relaxing couple of hours. Often secluded.

Getting There 

Tough to find. The best thing is to have someone riding shotgun, looking out the right window for the boulder around 8.7 miles from the 76 station corner. The pullouts are small here.
The boulder is set back perhaps a hundred feet from the road. Roughly 0.2 miles past the turn for Eightmile road (not 8 mile campground).
If you find the Sword area, drive back a very short distance towards town (~0.1 miles), and you'll see the boulder on the left.
