Description Suggest change

Includes Pond Cave, the Sink or Swim and the Fish & Chips walls, the Pond Cave Parking Boulder, the Fatboy boulder, the Talus & Hurricane boulders as well as the Chromatic Ribbon Boulder. 

Getting There Suggest change

Walk almost to the end of the spur road, the Pond Cave Parking lot boulder is right on the road, the trail on the right side of the pond leads to the rest of the boulders.

Alternatively, you can take a trail that trends down away from the Pedestal boulder. This trail forks, but both trails leading left into the woods will bring you to pond cave and from there it is easy to get to any of the boulders in this zone. This is the quicker approach when you are not driving in and parking at the Pond Cave Parking Boulder (Only in late spring/summer is the gate open for you to drive in).
