Just east of the striking Asteroid Crack (5.12d) is this huge boulder with an extensive collection of quality problems from V-easy to V10. Standouts here include the balancy and technical Face Off (V2), as well as the twin seams of Optigrip (V3) and Peabrain (V4). A conveninent and easy walk-off exists on the far left side of the west face just left of the problem Retro (V0).
Hike about 500 meters east from the Manx Boulders following a sandy wash, pass the Little Big Horn Boulder and continue on another 500 meters or so further east until you reach the obvious boulder which sits just southeast of the obvious Asteroid Crack.
