A tight grouping of tall south facing lines, on solid, dry rock. The landings are generally good (but can be built up more). Several of the routes look easy, but are often decievingly difficult.

Getting There 

Option #1: Drive 2.5 miles east on county road ZZ(just north of the dodge). Park at the wide flat area on the right side of the road. (This is 0.6 miles past the cell tower). There is a yellow state park sign that says no hunting on the right, park just past it. The boulders are 50 feet into the woods.
Option 2: Hike north up into the woods from group camp C or D.(approx 300 yards)

Climbing Season

For the Governor Dodge State Park area.

Weather station 4.2 miles from here

Like Columbus finding the new world we did rediscover the ZZ Boulders. Sorry Travis, when I rewrite the text books it will be Aaron who found the AA boulders.
