Atypical granite bouldering on a small cliffband and several freestanding boulders. The rock here is very steep and blocky, reminiscent of the quartzite of the more famous Gunks of New York. Many horizontal slashes and crack features make this spot a welcome change from the slabs and knobs so prevalent in Tuolumne. Bright green lichen adorns many of the problems. This area is shady most of the day, making it a good choice in midsummer.
2.6 miles west of the Tuolumne Store, park at a small pullout on the south side of the highway. Follow the trail which goes up the hill, look for the cliffband up and to your right.
