The Lone Star Boulder is a bulge of rock that juts off the upper ridge, creating a dramatic overhanging prow, where a number of excellent routes reside. Hard traverses are the name of the game here, with challenging and aesthetic moderates toping out the prow.
First, find the Skunk Rub boulder and follow to the top of the traverse. Continue uphill and pass the Call it Crock rock on the right. Scramble up to the upper tier.
