Description 

Situated on the west side of Slaughterhouse Canyon Road, this boulder offers hours of skin-lacerating fun! Rock is a sharp composite with many pockets and flakes (beware, some of them will pull right off), and is about 15-20 feet high. Three sides have V0-V1 problems, and the back side can be easily scrambled down if you top out. If your sore fingertips allow, traverse the entire boulder to get a good pump.

This boulder didn't show signs of being climbed much (see loose flakes referenced above), but judging by the quantity of broken glass, the area is undoubtedly frequented by drunk hillbillies. Good news: you'll have the climbing all to yourself, bad news: watch out for broken glass.

Getting There 

Take the I-40/Business Loop/Andy Devine Avenue through Kingman

Take Hualapai Mountain Road (right if you're coming from the west, left from the east) out of town.

Turn right on Jackson Street (run into Hualapai Kwik Stop for the best selection of micro-brews in town - just don't leave your smashed bottles on the boulder)

Left on Mission Boulevard

Right on Slaughterhouse Canyon Road (which turns to gravel before you go down the hill)

Free-standing boulder will be visible from the road on the right a little ways up the hill
