Very large boulder with an undercut-overhanging south side. The first boulder you will approach using my instuctions. The west face is over 20' tall and the east face is 15'+. Several very nice routes with potential for more. There are bolts on top for top roping.
Getting There [Edit]
The best approach I have found to reach the actual "Way too High Boulders" is to walk south from where you park following a faint trail down the valley that curves to the south west around the south side of "Turtle Dome". Eventually you end up headed about straight west in a flat area southwest of "Turtle Dome". Just before a ridge of rocks wander north into the woods and there are five large boulders (up to 30' tall) hidden in the trees. "Boulder-Soar-Rex" is the first rock you will encounter using this approach beta and is located in the south east part of the zone these boulders lie within.
