This is a huge house sized boulder. Very steep on one side, with high balls circling around all of the other sides.

Getting There 

From the parking area, walk as if you are going to Turtle Dome, now instead of going left over to Turtle Dome, go down the hill and slightly to the right. You will pass the "Knife In A Gunfight" boulder, and continue downhill. You will see the huge boulder in front of you.
