A 25' tall boulder that lays on the West side of Sabino Canyon Pkwy. It is the wall right next to the road, literally. Hard technical granite with dicey moves up a steep face.
As of now only two routes have been cleaned off of the boulder. Expect a fair amount of debris on other parts of the boulder. The Boulder is East facing and is in the shade by early afternoon.
There are two Pines at the top that are usable for Top Roping any part of the boulder. Belay/spotter will be standing in the road, but it is currently closed for construction and does not recieve much traffic anyways.

Getting There 

Take Mt. Lemmon Hwy straight to the Boulder. You will end up passing through Summerhaven on Sabino Canyon Pkwy. You really can't miss it on your right side. About 30' past Middle Sabino rd.
