Anyone have any info on the problem on the lower wall along the stream? I started sitting on two low pockets (which weren't obvious until I sat down), long left hand move to good hold in middle of the face and then a big move to the top of the boulder. Decent problem in a cool spot.

How was the bouldering/rock quality?

It was better than I expected. Kind of rough but the three spots listed here are decent. There seems to be a lot more rock out there, but I didn't have tons of time for hiking around.

I've hiked the trails looking for more, found a bunch of steep highballs but nothing too tempting. there is more rock along the power lines and towards the river that looks like it could be worth the hike.

7 falls is a frustrating place. a ton of massive boulders and ledges but the rock quality is pretty heinous. I will admit I like to climb the easy highballs though.
