These scattered boulders lie on either side of the trail between the junction and the Pinnacle Boulder. The Crack Boulder, the first you'll encounter is home to the beautiful and aptly named Crack of Pain and the classic, powerful Stainless Steel. The Karma Boulder is visible across a short marsh on the left side of the trail past the Crack Boulder and only has one established climb. To the left of the Karma Boulder and at the end of the small marsh is the Sorority Boulder with a fine collection of problems.

Getting There 

From the junction, head straight and skip the turn to the Swirley Boulder. The trail bends left and you'll run into the Crack Boulder. The trail heads right and up a small hill. In a few seconds you'll see the Karma Boulder over the small marsh. The Sorority Boulder is about 100' left of Karma.
