This upstream cluster of boulders generally provides exciting highball problems like Yosemite Arete (V5), Keep It Subtle (V5-6) and Kalbro (V3), but there are a bunch of shorter problems as well such as NRA (V2-3) and Bloody Knuckles (hard V5). The Yosemite Boulder, the tallest boulder in the area, is home to numerous classics and hikers regularly scramble up the obvious chimney to stand at its peak. Years ago, a sizeable chunk of rock broke off, destroying some of the old classics. For those seeking something difficult, check out Ceadas (V11) or what's left of Gunshow (V8). This area also includes the classic Bulletproof (V6) which is a shorter super slopey problem, and a number of projects.
From the zoo head upstream past Fritz Demise (V0) towards the tallest boulder you see. Thatís the Yosemite boulder and the problems surround it. You have to pass it on your way to Devilís Den
