The Contrast Boulder AKA "Choss Boulder" (due to the fact that it was underestimated for quite some time) is a large, steep boulder that sits inclined and long ways on the hillside past the Shadow Cast Boulder. Contrast is about a 12 minute walk down the trail up on the hillside to the left of the stream.
Walk past the first bridge and past the first boulder-strewn hillside where you find "polytechnic" "pyramid" and "Top Ramin". Continue past the Shadow Cast boulder that is to the right of the trail and shortly you will come to the small (too small and dirty to climb) cube-like block that is "balanced" on its corner and near the left side of the trail.
