Description 

This area has about 6-8 boulder problems with capacity for more and is quite secluded. Discovered by Bob Parrott, these problems fly under the radar.

Getting There 

Park at the main Lynn Woods parking lot. Head right around the pond on a wide gravel road to the end of the pond. At the end of the pond, continue straight ahead on the wide gravel road for about 5-6 minutes. As the trail begins to slowly rise, look left to see a small stream/ brook running parallel to the trail. Leave the trail, cross that stream, head uphill, and you should run into the boulders down in a depression.

Old Timer, any beta on getting to the Tombstone Boulders? I'm pretty familiar with the Lynn Woods trails, but I'm only just starting to investigate bouldering in the area. I'd love to check some of these problems out, and I'd be happy to mark the location on the map for future visitors.
