DescriptionJust down the slope from Barrel Ridge towards the road lie these boulders. You can see them if you drive slowly past the ridge and look up and right. Dismissed by some as choss, the larger boulder is, in fact, choss. Melinhead climbs the slightly overhanging corner closest to the ridgeline using edges and sandy sidepulls on the big boulder. A committing final move leads to the mossy topout. Another line could go up the overhanging face on the ledges but would be somewhat scary.
