Description 

The Hook Creek Boulder is a gigantic block on the South side of Icicle Creek. Home to a few topropes (they look pretty fun for beginners) and a couple of funky problems; it's probably worth the walk over just for Atomic Energy if you're making the rounds at that grade.

Getting There 

Park at the large pullout at 6 miles, and walk down to the creek to the bridge. Walk over the bridge and then take a left down the road; the boulder is around 40ft tall and you should be able to see it near the camping/picnic area on your right.
