The good stuff, highly concentrated, and easy to get to. Initially developed in the mid 90's by group of local boulderers (Andy Quillen, Ed Lyman, Jonathon Kingston, Matt Behrens, Jeremy Kane and "British Mike"), this area (and Bozoo in general) has seen waves of development after each dry spell. This area is a nice cluster of good sized boulders scattered at the cliff base. The lines here are overall more appealing than the other areas (IMO), and vary from horizontal slapfests to steep slopey technical faces. A real boulderers paradise.

Getting There 

Take the trail into the woods through the campsite located in the far right corner of the campground. Follow the left hand fork alongside the river. Lots of trees were Downed in the Derecho and recent flooding make travel much harder than in the past. The tral grows over thick in the summer. Take the river trail until you see two 8' tall hunks of rock sticking out of the hill on your right side. 100' past these take a steep trail up and right on top of the low bluff. (probably a 50' climb) Switchback around a small boulder to your left (downstream) and you will walk under some pines. At this point you will be on the trail between Air Jordy (on your left) and Mystery (on your right). To head to Zion and the Main Downstream Boulderfield head straight through the woods. If you want to hit the Talus boulders turn right up to Mystery and then cut left along the hillside trending up to the cliff.
