Description 

This is a large boulder off of Mesa Trail before the mouth of Eldorado Canyon. I'm not sure if this is named or documented in any guidebooks (that I haven't yet checked). However, this boulder is well-featured and great to climb upon. This boulder has numerous top out routes and a decent traverse.


Getting There 

Walk up Mesa Trail until you pass the first fork in the trail. From there, continue about 500 feet further until you reach a boulder on the right that is easily visible from the trail.

Sounds sick, will definitely need to get out there before summer is over.
