This is what the front side looks like.


This boulder is on the right side of the canyon just to the right of Marble Cake, there look to be some problems on the back side of it though there are some fairly large loose rocks that will need to be cleaned before this is a safe spot to boulder.

Getting There 

Head up the canyon about 5 minutes, dead center will be a flat sandy area with the large marbled boulder in front of you, Chossy is just to the right of it.

I remember having fun at the end of the day once having a line of pads and a spotter holding another upright, standing on the rock against the boulder on the left side and jumping to the cool block feature, then topping out. Not really a "route" and not all that different than "Leap Recon" which I'm assuming hits up the same two blocky jugs, but certainly a decent way to have some fun.
