Description 

This boulder is located up on a hill right before you reach the Amphitheatre. This boulder only has one problem and I have heard it is in the V4/5 range. Traverse along the top from left to right.

Getting There 

Head down the main trail and it is located on a hill to the left of the trail. Across the river is the Hollywood Cemetary. Should take about 5 minutes to get there from the parking lot.
