Description [Suggest Change]

Two incredible sandstone blocks lie in the gully right off of the road around 200 meters before the parking area for Frenchman's flat. Most climbs face west, morning is a good time to hit them to avoid the sun. These are the first boulders of Piru creek, and a wonderful short stop. There are boulders, one has a relaxed v1 arête and the other arête climb on thaty boulder uses a pocket in the middle of the face. The other boulder is massive, and has a slab with multiple v0's and a hard v6 on the other side, as well as "First impressions" v8 a traverse into an arête. There is also potentially a really hard project on the tallest face of the first impressions boulder.
