The Boulder (aka Fang Boulder)
The main draw here is The Boulder's crimpy holds on the sheer east face, but you can still have fun climbing the flakes on the southeast arete, or move to more positive holds on the northeast arete if your fingers start to fry.
The landings here are pretty flat, but use a spotter to keep you out of the bushes.
This boulder is just west of Mongoose Block and just northwest of the Arch Boulder.
Weather station 5.8 miles from here
