This area has a nice set of problems just east of the historic dam site and east of the Cherry Creek. It is just north of the Corridor and Creekside Boulders and south of Buoux Block area by a bit.

Getting There 

Follow the Lake Gulch trail from the east entrance of Castlewood Canyon. Once you cross the creek head to the right (east) for about 200 yards and look for a slab on your left hand side. There is a faint little trail heading directly up to the Buddha Cave area. The left hand turn is probably 100 yards before the trailside boulder which is a very noticeable feature.
