A few small boulders in the woods between two neighborhoods, don't expect much. Low-ball eliminates and strange traverses make up some of the fun problems that some one can try out for an hour or two after climbing at TRC North, as these boulders are 5 minutes away. This area only requires one Pad for any given problem.

Getting There 

From Duraleigh Rd, Turn onto Delta Lake Rd, followed by Poyner Rd and Lady of the Lake drive. From here park near the clearing in the visitor area or park by the pool in the middle of the neighborhood. Be stealthy. Head down the clearing and to the creek. there are boulders scattered throughout the area and some haven't been climbed. However for some the word boulder isn't quite appropriate...
