Please DON'T climb on this boulder as there is native american artwork on the lower left of the wall.

From the riverbed mentioned in the main directions take the first main trail and follow it for 5-10 minutes until you see the boulder to your left.

I don't think the park approves of climbing this boulder and anyone caught climbing it might get in trouble. I vote that we should take it off of the sight.

Can I ask, why? It can be made to go away or I could add an access note.

I added the boulder and I am for removing it from mtn proj however I no longer can due to comments. I don't think we should advocate for closure of this boulder however since both routes can be climbed without any disturbance of the drawing. Of course, under no circumstances should the drawings ever be touched but it is absolutely a non issue for these climbs. As with all climbs in the canyon we just need to be smart and it would be good to avoid these climbs while people are taking horses on the equestrian trail during busy weekends. If anyone can remove it from mtn proj lets do it and keep a low profile without having to outright shut down a good boulder
