This sunny little spot sits right on the side of the trail guaranteeing that you will get interest from passers by. There are several shorter problems on the long face that faces the trail and is hidden by the trees and on the small pointed boulder at the right end of the group. There is a really nice highish problem on knobs, kind of around behind the pointed boulder.
Walk up a main trail, the one that follows the low rise which is a little to the left as you start out from the parking area for a little over 5 minutes. When you get to the boulders they should be obvious. There are trails splitting off to the left of the main trail to gain the boulders.
