A small area nearby Shadow of a Man with a few worthwhile lowball problems. Very close to Shadow of a Man and Worm's Way, making it a good area to warm up in. Doesn't see nearly as much traffic as some of the more classic areas, but has a high concentration.

Getting There 

From Shadow of a Man, walk uphill a bit towards the cliffline until you hit the trail that runs with the cliffline. Follow this for a little bit and there should be a small cluster of boulders to your right. Alternatively, simply walk uphill a bit from the Comfortably Numb face of the Shadow boulder. Shouldn't be hard to find.
