In the old days, folks bouldered here without pads. As a result, at least one well-known climber wound up with a broken back. Watch the landings if you are ropeless.
Alternatively, per Eric Ziemba: from parking lot; cross the gate, and take trail immediately to your left and up the small hill. Go through the gap between rocks, and you're there. Many holds are well chalked, it will be obvious that you've arrived.
Or, follow directions laid out in Alcove Entrance Boulder, and squeeze through the gap.
Updated List of Problems
Hence, Chris will edit in an updated list here.
