This is the first cluster of boulders as you head up the bouldering trail, off of the Shut-In Trail.

Getting There 

Follow Shut-In/Mountains To Sea trail for less than 5 minutes, past a small set of boulders just off the trail to the left (Unclimbed Boulders), to the next set of boulders to the left...follow the faint bouldering trail uphill 20 feet or so to the first overhanging boulder.
