New Balance boulder is uphill and east of Pig Platter which puts this right up against the road retaining slope which would be directly north of Boomer Selfie area. It’s tucked in a corner with the wall facing north.
New Balance offers 2 problems: a VB sit start called Get Off My Lawn and a V1-2 traverse, Brand New New Balances.
For newer outside climbers Sit Starts are probably new too - this one starts on a square shelf jug for plenty of purchase. Figure out how to stick feet to small edges or smear to get started. Throw for a RH crimp and work your way up using the starting hold to topout securely. If the holds feel slick brush the lichen off this north face where needed.
Park at Juji Fruit pullout (the one that looks like a granite ramp to the west) and walk downhill. Go north and pass Monogamy Rock, continue north along the trail and pass Boomer Selfie traverse and other problems, and continue further north to the Pig Platter area. Up against the slope below the road is New Balance boulder with its climbable face facing north. Starting jug is obvious and close to the road.
You can also approach this by walking downhill along the guardrail to the north and look down. When the Grady areas runout into woods there will be a big rock next to the slope with a square top. This is New Balance.
Pig Platter is just downhill. Rattlesnake Jake is WSW. All of these boulders are very close to the road and each other.
