The Streambed Boulders are a collection of four boulders that practically sit in the stream. Imagine that. The two closest to the Illmob Boulder are called the Kissing Cousins, while the stream actually runs beneath the other two. Most of the problems here have been left out of the guidebook, but nearly all of them are worthwhile. Classics include EZ Cheese, the Riverbed, and Seinfeld, but for something more difficult, give Provia a try.

Getting There 

Locate the babbling brook and follow it upstream. Ok, so that’s probably not the best approach. From the Zoo, look across the stream and you’ll see the Streambed Boulders. From the Illmob, look towards the Zoo. These boulders are sitting between the Zoo, the Illmob Boulder and the Yosemite Boulder.

This is a great area mainly for beginners and visitors or a mixture of both I guess. Most people only think of it as the home of E-Z Cheese, but it houses so much more than that. Due North, Seinfield, The Riverbed, and Provia would go down as area classics in my book. There are also a countless amount of good v0's and v1's like Fritz's Demise and King Arthur.
