Great boulders such as The Kraken, Grateful Dead, and Raiden.

Getting There 

Drive 2.7 or 2.8 miles down the left fork. Pull out on the left side. The boulders will be on the right side of the canyon when you are driving in.
A few boulders will be accessable right from the road, but classics like The Kraken and Grateful Dead can only be acessed by a hike up a trial head. The trailhead is fairly well established and is found by hiking about 200 ft towards the mouth of the canyon. The prominent "Whiteout" Boulder is visible from the trailhead and will let you know you are in the right place.

The Kraken V4 6B UT : Joe's Valley : ... : Raiden Area
One of the classic highballs of Joe's. The climb is two distinct sections. With a substantial rest in between. Stand start on crimps. The first 15ft is the technical crux with a V4 move to get into a pocket. After this, you get a great handholds of the rest where you can shake out and eye the holds to the top. The second 15ft is probably in the V2-V3 range, but feels a lot hard because you are so far off the ground.
