Cool, north-exposed problems down the back-side. A great place to boulder on warmer/ sunnier days.
From the north end of the corridor (just above and to the west of the upper cluster - see map and separate description), continue due north down the hill. The trail veers slightly right (east), then curves back around to the left (west) before reaching the bottom of the hill. Continue straight west (toward town) about 20 meters until you come to a tall, square rock with a vertical north face. This is "wounded knee" boulder, named for a nasty starting foothold that loves to spit feet off and cause knee trauma. A nice big juniper sits just to the north of the rock, and makes for a great little private bouldering den.
