Description 

These two boulders are on the left side of the main wash. One faces away from the road and the other leaning next to it has a large dagger of rock hanging precariously off the top (I'm pretty sure it's solid).


Getting There 

Walk up the main wash about halfway and then trend left towards the cliff.
