Located just above the Illness Boulders lies some large boulders with lots of problems. These boulders see a lot of sun, so they are great in colder weather when the sun is shining.

Getting There 

Hike up the gully at mile marker 268 up and past the Illness Boulders(see photo).

Just FYI, this wall has gross landings. They slope away badly and you're going to be throwing your pads down on top of giant bushes with rocks and whatnot underneath. The lines themselves look cool, but I didn't think it was worth the effort of hiking all the way up there.

Now if someone went and landscaped...

The landings are not terrible as long as you have a couple pads and a spotter to catch. This block is definitely tall and not for the faint of heart.
