Two minutes from farther upcanyon from the Dali boulder is a number of newly established problems (2010) in a pristine setting at the base of the alpine slabs.
Walk approximately 200 meters up canyon from the Dali area, trending left until you reach a break in the trees and an old campsite with a firepit by a big boulder. The French Kiss Boulder is directly behind the campfire boulder and is easily identified by the unmistakable "Tongue" starting hold.
