This boulder is home to two of the most classic problems in the park, Tommy's Arete and The Automator. The formation is massive but relatively low making it a bit tricky to find.

Getting There 

From the Centaur Boulder, head west and a bit north (right) to the height of land, just a bit past the Skyscraper Boulder. About five minutes should do it. Look for a boulder with a striking well-featured SE arete and a very steep east face.

Climbing Season

For the Chaos Canyon Bouldering area.

What are those two boulders on the right of Tommy's Arete?
Both start on the same holds as Tommy's, but after the first three moves you move to the right.
