Directly to the right (when looking uphill) from the Seventh Son Boulder.

Chalaza has several variants but two main lines.

The boulder is vertical and has a thin crackline across its upper 3rd. The upper left portion has a large gap out of it which is used in several problems, and likewise the crack feature is used for its crimps.

Good landing and comfy hands make this a fun block.

Getting There 

The Egg Basket. To the direct right of Seventh Son when coming up from the downhill field, or to the right if coming down from the upper trail.
