It's a pebbly large boulder good mostly for short toproping tho some climbers are working some bouldering problems. Has some really fun routes for new and young climbers and some variations up to 5.10. It is right off the stairs so hikers will be just a few feet away from you. They are generally very friendly and interested.
Park in West View lot and go up the stone stairs. This rock will be near the top and right front of you - the stairs turn 90 degrees left at it. The Boy Scout Ledges will be on the left.
