Description 

The "Twins" are the closest erratic boulders to the ATT tower at the top of High Rock Rd. The boulders offer good landings, and moderate grades. A great place to warm up. The larger of the boulders has no easy way down, either down climb the leaning tree, or pick a problem to do backwards.

Getting There 

From the ATT tower, walk up small stone stairs past the High Rock Memorial. Walk off the back side and turn right town a single track trail. After a few hundred yard, two boulders will be visible a hundred feet off the trail on the right.

Boulders are about a half mile down the trail then 100-150 yards off of the trail to the right.
