This boulder is in the shade most of the day. It's 10 feet tall and has one decent problem.

Getting There 

From the main parking lot at Lynn Woods, walk left and pass through the mini-stone towers and begin walking up the wide dirt road (Great Woods Road). Continue uphill and don't take any lefts or rights. You will see several small boulders on your right that are about 10-40 feet off the trail after about 10 minutes. The shady boulder is the last one on the right as the dirt road begins to climb steeply to the Stone Tower.
