These boulders are located at the apex of the hill and contain some of the best problems in the northeast. The rock here is slick schist which is bad in two conditions rain and heat. If it does begin to rain you can count on waiting for the climbs to dry.

Getting There 

Walk 100 yards uphill from the parking lot. Expect motorcycles whizzing by, and gigantic rv's that could crush you. Walk along the road with caution.
