This is a bouldering area on the East side of Castlewood Canyon. One of the classics here is Phillip's Problem, V5.

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.
