The Lonely boulders are a group of three separate boulders on the opposite end of Barn Bluff from the Qual Wall. These guys have been waiting a long time to see some action... The better problems here are some of the finest in the park with steep climbing on generally solid holds. With more than a dozen problems I thought I would throw this area in because of quality and concentration. You can definitely get away from everyone/everything at this spot. Peaceful, quiet. Almost feels remote.
Hike around the corner, past the Qual Wall and head for the other end of the bluff. Do not hike too high for the boulders are down aways from the top. There is no trail persay, but follow the most open way through the prickers.
