Description 

These couple of roadside boulders have several topropes or boulder problems that range from 5.8 to 5.12 (Woodward Direct). Thankfully much of the paint that was dumped on them so many years ago has worn off, via nature.

Location 

At the Uncertainty Principle switchback, these are found on the lefthand side, just steps off the road.

There is only one painted boulder, which would be the one with the paint streak facing the road. What used to be a thick white swath of paint is now a faded stain.

The boulder next to painted boulder is know as "the boulder next to painted boulder". It is not painted, but does have some good climbs on it.
