Description Suggest change

The Blanding Boulders have about 50 different established boulder problems in a relatively small area with plenty potential for development. The sandstone is kind of soft but will clean up nicely with a little traffic. Most of the established problems are in the V0-V3 range with a handful of harder problems.
