Description 

This little gem is only a minute or two off the main trail and has a couple sweet, overhanging V4s. One or two of the holds sound a little bit hollow but don't look like they're going to break anytime soon. It could use a little more cleaning, but the routes are awesome, the landing is decent, and the boulder is super cool!

Getting There 

On the Buchanan trail at about 2.5-2.75 miles, you will see two HUGE boulders on either side of the trail. At this point, take a right into the trees and hike uphill (north) for about 60 yards through the boulders. The routes are on the backside of the boulder (facing north) but are worth finding for sure. See the pictures.
