Joe, any more information for this area? I was thinking of taking a run up to check it out, especially if there is more than what you have listed here.

Hmm, Joe's holding out. There must be something he is hiding then. I'll have to check it out now.

Sorry Mark, missed this. There is definitely more out there. There is a lot or rock between the Bellfield boulder and the Venom boulder including a pretty good size cliff (close to the power lines).
