Description 

Small concentration of Great problems. North facing so it can get kinda cold up here.

Getting There 

Take primary trail from parking until you reach Pino trail gate. Go through gate and after about 100 ft you should see a small sign on your right, head through grass looking for a cairn. Follow cairns up to ridge and take a left still following cairns and faint trail. From the gate to the boulders should be about 10 minutes. I will post a map soon.

This is the view to the south from the trail just past the brown sign. The "trail" starts just to the right of the tree and kind of follows the drainage just beyond until moving across to the right of it then trending back up and left to a rock outcropping with a very dead tree at the west edge of a flat clearing. From here, see the next photo for the location of the boulders
