These are the first boulders encountered upon crossing the road. There is a very large boulder on the left with some good warm-up problems and lots of possibilities for eliminates. Another boulder off to the right and further from the road has an excellent V3 on a very steep arete.

Crux is going left around the bulgy arete. Whole thing is good with long moves, some dynos, well timed rests, and a sweet topout.From the starting holds, move left out around the cruxy arete bulge on smallish crimps/sidepulls. Throw to high large hueco on main face before moving down jugs, crimps and rails to a well deserved rest at the huge jug prior to topping out on reachy pockets.

So...I left my book at the lower boulders yesterday. If the person who found it happens to want to give it back, that would kick ass! Please message me. Thanks

As of 12/2015, the unsorted routes are on the nearby boulders called, according to the Old Pueblo Bouldering site, "The Guy" and "The Gal", which are about 30 and 60 feet respectively north east (to your right as you're facing the main roadside boulder) from the main roadside boulder.
