Description 

---> Sadly, the Roadside Boulder was blown up and bulldozed along with the decaying building... These pictures are all that is left, and are left here as a reminder and in hope that wonderful natural features like this can be preserved for future generations to enjoy. This boulder was fantastic.. <---

The Lower Boulders (Stone Building) Area has a completely unique feature that i have never heard of before. the stone building here was built into the overhanging boulder, and now the structure has partially fallen apart. the old building is still standing around the boulder, and you can sit-start and climb half of a (v-3) inside the room, transfer outside the doorway and top out outside the structure. sooo cool.

Getting There 

park and walk back down the highway about 50 meters toward the obvious, nearby dilapidated building with all of the spray paint. the building beside this is partially stone and built into a boulder. you guessed it... this is where you want to be.
walk around the boulder the building is built into and turn left up the small slab. you will see the cluster of stone and boulders to climb...
