Description 

One of the sunniest (and best) bouldering areas at Mcafee's Knob! Located just off of the trail from the Corridor Area. This area is off the trail to your right as you hike up from the parking area. Most problems here are shorter, 10-12 feet tall with hard mantles. There are plenty of classic, awesome, must do's in this place!!

Getting There 

Hike three and a half miles up hill from the parking lot. Pass the Arrow Boulder, the Corridor Area on the left, and pay attention to your right. You will see a short boulder on the right hand side, and a trail cutting off (it will be clearer) to the right. you will see more boulder to the right... check it out!

it says 3.5 hours... should say 3.5 miles, more like a 1 hour hike for most climbers.
