A nice group of boulders with surprisingly good rock for Kansas City.

Getting There 

From 71 and Blue River Road exit, head North on Blue River Road .9 miles. Parking is on either side of the road. Note that there are two trailheads. Don't use the one with the big sign by the road. Use the one just north of that.

Take the trail east for about 100 yards, taking the first left and heading uphill.
