Description

The rock up here seems better than that on the first step with some of it looking almost polished. There are also more larger boulders here than on the first step. Most of these boulders are either exposed on the ridge itself or around to the north of the ridge.

Getting There

Continue further up the ridge past the first flat area almost to the second. Then find the boulders that are pictured.
