Description 

This large boulder is formed by 3 boulders lying on top of each other. The problems are all found on the steep faces that face the approach path. The standout problem of the boulder is British Rail (V4).

Getting There 

Hike past the Ranger Station, the trail junction and the turn-off for the Flash Gordon Area and continue along the trail as the Trailside Boulders come into view. Cross the creek at a fallen log opposite the arete of Gluttony (V8) and hike about 100 meters bearing slightly right to some obvious boulders at the edge of a small hillside. The boulder is on your left, and faces the Cassieopeia Boulder.
