These two boulders are even farther up Big Wash from Smoke on the Water. Although probably not worth a hike all the way up for these two mediocre boulders, they are definitely worth exploring if you are venturing up Big Wash. Mr. Ed is a small boulder with a couple of challenging one or two move problems. The Honeycomb boulder is worth climbing on just for its strange texture. This boulder is an anomaly down here as there really isn't anything else like it.

Getting There 

These are located about three quarters of a mile up Big Wash trail. You will have to cross the creek four times to get here (twice after Smoke on the Water).
