There are three main boulders here. The first boulder you reach after bushwhacking is the Diamond Boulder which has the problems Cops, Robbers, Bank Heist, and Jailbird. The second boulder is about 30 feet straight ahead and is called the Emerald Boulder. It has the problems Missing Link and Mr. Sketchy. The third boulder is about 10 feet further and is called the Ruby Boulder. It is the tallest and has the problems 60 Grit, Cue the Crickets and Problem Child on it.
Descend down the trail towards the Stone Tower Boulders for about 45 seconds and break left into the woods, maintaining the same elevation and bushwhack about 150 to 200 feet to find these boulders. Found by the legendary boulder hound Bob Parrott..., these gems are off the beaten path!
