The back entrance of Lynn Woods could be considered the Deep Woods Trail trailhead off the power line trail. If you head towards the Deep Woods Trail via Bow Ridge Reservation, you'll pass these two boulders which sit on the left (south) side of the power line clearing as seen from the Bow Ridge trail crossing.

Getting There 

See the description. From the Bow Ridge Reservation main trail, cross the power lines. Take your first right after the power lines, and head up the hill back towards the power lines.

It appears that at least Entrance Boulder 1 has seen some climbing. I saw some evidence of typical Lynn Woods curmble marks near the feet, and what looks like a shadow of a piece of rock that came off cleaning a hand hold. Let me know if you have any info. I logged the most obvious lines.

I changed the name to "Back Door Boulders" to prevent confusion with the Entrance Boulders in the Promised Land.
