The Rosetta Stone is a large round boulder, somewhat reminiscent of Slashface, with a dark patina south face. This face is dead vertical, is about 22 ft. tall, and has 4 excellent, Proud boulder problems on it.
As you enter the Loveland canyon, locate the obvious Bird Beak Formation. To the right of this formation is a small gully that leads over a small hill. Follow this gully over the hill and into the start of a larger canyon. Walk down this canyon for several 100 feet to the round, dark brown boulder. Approach is about 30 min.
