Description 

Turd Boulder is behind the North Shelf Block. Nicely overhanging problem moving up from left to right. Fun moves, possible variations. Watch your landings...not sure how it got its name.


Getting There 

Hike through the "V-notch" to the left of and above the North Shelf Block then follow a faint trail 50' to the south.
