Upper Mound (main upper cluster of boulders) Rock Climbing
The Egg (V1/2).
A cluster of boulders with a variety of problems and a nice sheltered nook to hang out in. Great place to set up "camp" on crisp sunny days.
Walk up the hill about 30 meters to the north of the warmup boulders and you're there.
Weather station 3.5 miles from here
