"This is one of the most condensed areas in Yosemite. You will find fun problems of all levels on tight-grained featured rock." -Yosemite Valley Bouldering Supertopo

Getting There 

Park at the turnout (GPS: 37.72055074544388, -119.62950468063354) just before the road to El Cap bridge, or park where the road from El Cap bridge meets the south side drive. Follow a trail near the turnouts into the woods that leads to the main foot path that parallels the road. From here follow a worn trail towards Higher Cathedral Rock. After about 1000 ft. you will see the boulders left of the trail.
