BETA PHOTO: Foundation Rock from the wash.


This boulder has a nice overhang that rises over a wash. The landing is relatively flat compared to most boulders located around washes. Given that and the secluded nature of the area, it gives this boulder has a very unique feel. This is another great boulder in an area with a number of other great boulders all within a minute walk of each other.

Getting There 

Parking at the Chinese Algebra area and following the small dirt road to the north once you cross the creek is probably the easiest way to access the area where this boulder lies. If you park at the Blue Moon area and are exploring from there, you'll cross the creek and head west uphill towards the wall. This boulder lies along the wash once you find the general group of boulders that are nearby, the closest neighboring boulder is Fertile Rock.
