These are on the South side of Castle Mountain in an open meadow strewn with boulders. Bob Horan's Bouldering Colorado, Falcon Press, 2008 has a nice picture of the area.

Getting There 

From downtown Estes Park, take highway US 34 for 2 miles just past Nicky's Resort and Lodge. The meadow is on the north side of the road. Hike north on a faint trail for 100 yards to enter National Park Service land.
