The Illness Boulders host some of the best problems up the 268 gully. The Left Illness Boulder has some awesome juggy V1 warmups and some really good hard problems. The right Illness Boulder has a fun V5 campus/crimpy problem and a V3 and V7 variation that go straight up and keep traversing, respectively. Fun stuff.

Getting There 

Hike for about 20 minutes up the gully by mile marker 268. See Beta Photo....
