This is an edged, slightly overhung, block-shaped rock with excellent, semi-highball problems on its south face. A meadowesque landing zone is found at its peaceful, creekside base.

Getting There 

Hike up past the Water Boulder (aka Riverside Boulder) on the trailway heading west for a short distance, and take a side trail down to the creek. Scramble across a few smaller boulders around and along the north creekside shore for approximately 100 feet to the west until you see this prominent gem stone.
