Seemingly made for climbing this massive block is heavily featured with cracks, flakes and jugs and offers an excellent selection of easy problems/warm-ups from V-easy to V4.

Getting There 

Starting from the far end of The Beach take the trail past the Methane Boulder, past the Steep Sharma Arete and wind up through boulders until the obvious mass of the Glass Boulder comes into view on the left. The approach takes about 20-30 minutes depending on your method of approach and hiking speed.
