Large solitary boulder situated on the hillside 1 mile north of the road. The standout problem is the hard and fingery Leather and Lace.

The boulder is actually two separate blocks formed the the original boulder was split apart. The gap now forms a chimney which is the easiest way up and down.

The east face heats up fast in the morning, so plan on getting there early or late in the day if you are aiming for these problems.

The majority of the problems need a couple of pads to make stable landings.

Getting There 

From the parking area walk north aiming for the rocky outcrop at the base of the hill. After a mile you should spot this large split boulder up on the left on a shoulder.
