Description 

Starting just to the right of a 5.7 corner follow the line of boulders to the top. A good variation is to start to the right on a slanting ledge and join the main route. A fun easy route.

Location 

The route is approximately in the center of the Guillotine Wall. Coming in from the west walk along the base passing an outside corner (Poison Ivy 5.5). Here the base becomes a ledge, walk along this slightly exposed ledge to the next outside corner (5.7 corner). Broken Boulders starts just past the 5.7 corner. Walk off to the left, head left and down before you reach the Monster Wall.

Protection 

Light rack, cracks on top to build an anchor.
