This is a small zone, but it has a handful of good problems and the area's best line, Childbirth. This zone lies next to the main hiking trail to Arthur's Rock, so expect the inevitable questions about your pads.
Hike up the Arthur's Rock trail PAST the bouldering access trail, perhaps 20 minutes.

You will be staring up at Childbirth which slashes through the overhang and up the arete. The even larger, pyramid-shaped Valhalla Boulder is just slightly uphill. You will also find the Gremlin Boulder just behind Childbirth, and the Sicker Boulder up and behind the Valhalla Boulder.
