Description

A tight concentration of maybe 6 or so boulders of pretty good quality. The boulders are tightly packed together so it can be sheltered or a wind funnel.

There are 2 groups of three boulders each. The upper area which you come to first is refered to as the Crystal Ship and is composed of a corridor between 2 boulders and the third blocks the end of the corridor forcing you to go up and left to get through.

The second group is pretty obvious once to pop out of the corridor. There is a big boulder balenced on a pedastal on the right. Then the boulder with the Broken Glass traverse sits under the left edge of the balenced boulder. A third boulder sits more on its own further tot he left.

Getting There

From the First Group head to the right past the smaller boulder and across the hillside for about 100 yards to these boulders. GPS is for the first boulders you come to.

For the masochist, if you follow Lee's directions to the corridor in the Crystal Ship area, don't go up and left to get to the glass house area. Instead, duck down and scope out the tunnel that would take you to the same place. Look up, grab a hand jam and proceed to work your way south along the roof crack/flare. Exit with strenuous stems/bridging. Flannel recommended. Technophobia is V3 and not fun, but if you are training for the Valley, it might be useful for replicating horrifying bombay chimneys.
