Description 

This is the best of several boulders to the right of the main crag. It is shady and buggy at times. There are a couple of good climbs and one very hard slab problem.

Getting There 

Past the main crag, as the trail goes up and left, go right into the woods for about 100 meters to this area.

Per Jcomeau: Alternate directions, I think. Stay on the orange blazed trail past the main cliff until you come to the blue on the right. That trail will drop you out right in the middle of this area. The trail is a bit hard to find.

Was over here today. Nice hard arete problem, slab, according to the book there is supposed to be a V2 roof down here, too.

The roof is cool. Also topped out the slab just to the left of the arete. That topout is high and scary with one pad and no spotter! I was shaking so badly I was spilling my victory sip of coffee all over my pad....
