Island Boulder's north-facing overhang provides one very good problem. The rock quality is polished but solid. The landing is mostly good, but it does possess a few rocks. Also, the landing may be inundated with water, as rainfall can flood the landing. It usually takes about a week for the water to subside after a rain event.
From the main parking area, head slightly northeast down the hill to the creek. The boulder lies within the creek bed and the north-face will be easily visible if approached from downstream.
