As a Bendemeer local please respect my projects on this boulder and dont attemp any till i finish. I only ask for this boulder only. Thankyou

Legend has it when this boulder was being cut into horizontal slabs by the cutters and it actually fractured the wrong way! Fracturing vertically and that is why it was left. True or not? It has left us with one fun boulder. A lot of hard work went into hand cutting this boulder back in the day. It only seems right to honor that by climbing it!
