this rock has been in the middle of our trail for the past year and we finally moved the sucker to complete the road gap step up to connect the upper and lower section of the Sentinel.
so if you cant sink it, and if you can't break it, winch it. we used a 5000lb come-a-long 2 tow straps and a whole load of safety straps. use trees as anchors with tree straps as to not damage the tree and be very cautious to secure all the straps so if something slips its either tied down or roped to.
so heres a photo directive of how we moved it and the completed section of trail.
