One little boulder hidden near the Alcove area of Hammond Pond. The name comes from graffiti on the the right side of the boulder which reads "Uncle Tom" and "Have a Nice Day." Probably only about six feet from ground to lip, but a sit start creates a decent boulder problem.

Getting There 

From the Alcove area, walk towards the Beached Whale Boulder and the nearby toproping wall. To the right of this wall is a small path up the hill. Follow this path up until you see a short boulder with white graffiti on it.
