Small concentration of Great problems. North facing so it can get kinda cold up here.

Getting There 

Take primary trail from parking until you reach Pino trail gate. Go through gate and after about 100 ft you should see a small sign on your right, head through grass looking for a cairn. Follow cairns up to ridge and take a left still following cairns and faint trail. From the gate to the boulders should be about 10 minutes. I will post a map soon.
