Google earth view of some of the boulders along the Molen Reef, right off the Moore Cutoff Rd  overview map of bouldering area off Moore Cutoff Rd.  Small sample of some of the boulders in this area, along the Molen Reef.   The view from the spacious belay atop the pillar, at mid-height on Epinephrine.  We were moving a little slow, and decided to bail from a couple pitches above the pillar, not too bad if you're careful and have 2 ropes.   After a couple short, easy pitches, you gain entrance to the chimney system.
