Description 

This area is on winter green property so climbing is allowed however be very sensitive about parking and walking around or near houses. I have limited info on names of problems ect because i was not the original person to find this area and put up the first problems. But there have been some new hard lines that got put up recently and a lot more around that can be done. rock quality is so so in spots and great in others.
Avoid this place in the arm months unless you are immune to poison ivy.

Getting There 

Park at the location listed in the picture and stay off the the side the best that you can. you then hike up the small old road directly out the back of the parking circle. This leads to a power meter for a future house on the lot.
Before this is boulder 1 below to to the left of the road.
to get eh the other boulders you make a slight right at the power meter and head up the hill. you should be hiking to the left and up. this will bring you to a large group of boulders. Boulder 3 and 4 are in the left area of the boulders on the side of the hill.
Boulder 2 is slightly below and directly left of these boulders, so hike horizontally along the hill side to the left.
