Description 

This area hosts a number of good easy problems, making it a good location if you want moderate problems, or a quick warm up for some the harder problems around. The Huggy Bear problem is good, despite its size, and if you can find it you'll enjoy climbing it.

Getting There 

Take the lower access path and when you reach the start of the bouldering follow the steep access path up the hillside on your right. After 5 mins start to look rightwards and your eventually see some chalked up holds. Head to these holds and get orientated.
