Description 

The area consiting of the ridge up to and the first flater area. Many small boulders and a few bigger guys. Lots of knobs, but the surrounding rock is generally grainy. The climbing can be pretty good though as the knobs are generally solid.

Many dispersed problems on several boulders that have been "put up" and subsequently forgotten through out the years, typical of the foothills.

Getting There 

Start up the ridge and follow pictures or directions to each indivdual boulder.
