Description 

Usually less populated with a few good warms ups and some fun moderates.

Getting There 

Take the trail to the west side boulder field and take the first trail off to the right. This goes down and around a downed tree and comes to the first boulder on your right which is the tear drop boulder. Following that is the egg and up the trail is leprechaun roof. Approach from the upper parking lot is around 10-15 minutes.
