A south and west facing boulder hosting two climbs: The Wombat (5.11) faces south and True Grit (10a) faces west. A good place to climb on colder days.

To build a toprope, walk around to the north side of the boulder to the top. Class 1. Depending on where you build the anchor, you may need to extend your slings.

Getting There 

Walk to the Twin Owls area then follow the trail south for several minutes. When you hit the rock, head around to the right between the nasty white thorn and the rock face. At the SW toe of the boulder is where the climbs are.
