Nice bouldering in the flats accessed by dirt roads. Good camping with springs.

Getting There 

Coming from Ranchita, turn right off the S-22 road just past the Windy Boulders (obvious boulders on the right). Drive 1/4 mile to a Y. There is good camping to the left, and most of the bouldering is to the right.
