This boulder is big and beautiful.

As you hike up from the Massey gap parking area, this area sneaks up on you. you can actually walk past this area if you aren't paying attention even though it is literally just off the trail.

The Sunset Boulder is massive. At its tallest point Sunset could be considered a super highball/free solo.

Getting There
