There are at least twenty quality problems in the area on a handful of boulders. Ship's Prow is the crown jewel, but most of the boulders around have great problems.

Getting There 

From behind the Lorax, hike north following the cliff band towards Animas Mountain for about twenty minutes. Many boulders of varying quality and size are encountered on the way. Square 1 is the large, lichen covered block close to the cliff band with an elegant crack splitting it.
