Small boulder with great angles. I'm sure this has been climbed, but so I could not find any information on problems. please comment if you know of any established problems on this block.

Getting There 

The boulder can be reached by both the road and the trail, however access is easiest from the trail side, and due to the likelihood of erosion, should be accessed from the trail only. the back side of the boulder is just up the hill from the first information kiosk on the trail(about 1/4 mile from the trail head). walk around the back of the boulder and you should see the climbable face, and be just above the service road.

Climbing Season
