This formation is the first large unimpressive pile of boulders you see on the right side of the trail. It looks like there can't be anything worth doing there from that vantage point.
We did three of the five today and the consensus of an experienced bunch of locals was;
Wiener Inspector (hard 5.9 or soft 10a)
My Naughty Little Donkey (10a)
Bongo Johnnie (10b if over 5'9" 10+ if shorter)
The middle two;
too evil looking to contemplate today.
All of the routes were good, steep, thought provoking and relatively sheltered from the wind.
