Description 

Really small. This block is fun but little... If youre not cool with short blocks and little problems, keep walking.

Getting There 

continue a few yards past the Autumn Boulder and the Jet Boulder, past the massive fallen hollow tree, and look deep into the forest to your left. you will see a small unassuming boulder face (that you may otherwise second guess or walk past). this is the Tuna Boulder.

Once at the Tuna Boulder, walk to the right (parallel to the trail) and you will see the Yate's Boulder.
