This little gem is only 12'-15' tall. The routes are are technical vertical face climbs utilizing unique features. The rock has an obvious spout feature on the north west corner. All of the routes on this boulder were originally bouldered out.
The best approach I have found to reach the actual "Way too High Boulders" is to walk south from where you park following a faint trail down the valley that curves to the south west around the south side of "Turtle Dome". Eventually you end up headed about straight west in a flat area southwest of "Turtle Dome". Just before a ridge of rocks wander north into the woods and there are five large boulders (up to 30' tall) hidden in the trees. "The Tea Kettle" is located just north of "Agony of DaFeet" and "Boulder-Soar-Rex".
