Description 

This is a rock sitting on top of another small boulder with a beautiful roof on it. It is only maybe three feet or four feet off the ground. It has nice rails running along the right side and left side of the arete to slab. This beautiful boulder is very fun, and it could use a few more problems.

Getting There 

Stand face to graffiti and look left and uphill about 200 or 300 feet, and that is Hyrax. If at Arrowhead, look back and up hill to the left.
