It is striking and alone. I would love to see someone make an attempt at it.

I'm aware that the website does not give a plethora of information on the location, but this article:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/...elandic-volcano.html
seems to say it is in a valley near Eyjafjallajokull.

I think this would be a cool addition to any climbing movie.

are you sure it's in Eyjafjallajokull? I swear I've seen that boulder just outside of Ikllipiergoonallyjyiajavic.

Looks like an old boulder to me. Are you certain of its production date?

It shouldn't be hard to tell. Most boulders like that have the production date stamped on the bottom. Oh wait...

The top looks kind of dusty -- someone needs to brush it off, first.

It's new. A buddy and I set a few routes on the far side. We used 100% organic so ill holds to give it that au naturale feel.
