This area includes three separate boulders and a number of problems ranging from V0 to V6 including many unique and really fun V4s.

Getting There 

From the Mollusk boulder, follow the path until you see a small creek and a trail that heads up a hill and to your right. If you get to Tyler Durden you have walked too far. Take this trail accross the stream and up the hill. You will arrive on the right side of the "warmup" boulder. If you continue past this boulder on the right side, you will come to a boulder with a obvious brown wall coated in chalk and many holds. This is Brown Cow.
