BETA PHOTO: Above Boulder's west face.
Above is a smaller boulder that is actually just one segment of the uppermost cliff line of Four Blocks. The rock quality is solid and uniquely gritty for the area. The landings for the boulder are good. The west face is the climbable side and has potential for several problems.
From the Four Blocks parking area, climb east up the hill to the cliff band. There is some scrambling required at the cliff band, but it doesn't get too crazy. Gain the upper plateau, and the next cliff band will be another 30 yards. Reference the page map for an exact location.
