A fantastic house-sized boulder standing alone in a clearcut. The easiest boulder to access at Gold Bar because of the short approach. Great quality, fine grained featured granite. The south facing side is a tall, edgy, face, while the other side vary from overhung, tall aretes to super steep sloper problems reminiscent of Gibb's Cave in Squamish.
Drive approx. 0.6 miles on Reiter road past the regular entrance to the main bouldering area (identifiable by the big, open metal gate, and the fact it is just past the Reiter Pit, 2.1 miles from the Highway 2/Reiter Rd. intersection). You will come to a pullout on the right. On the other side of the road, a gravel road crosses a stream then heads into the clearcut area. Park here, and hike up the gravel road to a fork. Go right and uphill under the power lines. Head left into the forest following rutted 4x4 trails. After about 100 meters, you'll see the boulder.

The line of slopers starting by the right side cave route and going left and up. I haven't done this problem, so my only knowledge about the name and quality comes from Dave, but I figured it's good to get problems posted on here.
