Description 

The main boulder in this area has probably been climbed by many many people over many many years. Other bouldering if found threw out the area but The Metamorphic rock is probably the biggest and best for bouldering.

Getting There 

Follow the trail that heads east when entering the Blue Mounds Quarry. Follow this trail past the Orc Wall and follow it till you come to Kanaranzi Buttress this boulder is right before you come up on the buttress.
