The reason(s) you came to Arthur's lie here. Located below the access trail are classics like the Vice, Brick Pinch, Godzilla, Mainstreet, Ode to Failure, Syringe, and the Last Resort. You will find shade in the forest on the north faces, or some sun on the southern aspects.

Getting There 

Hike up the Arthur's Rock trail until you reach the bouldering access trail, perhaps 20 minutes. Head up this trail passing the Fog That Surrounds area. Above this, there are two access trails that head downhill to the left. The first trail heads down to the southern sides of Drunken Master and Warm Up Boulders. The second leads down to the north Side of the Warm Up and Drunken Master Boulders, as well as the Syringe Boulder.

On the first access trail - on the east and south sides of the Drunken Master Boulder - you will pass problems such as Last Resort, Brick Pinch, Double Stack, before the boulder slabs out into the solo/highball Drunken Master. The next boulder downhill is the Warm Up Boulder's South face with the Warm Ups, Clutch, and Le Crimp. Next to this is Mole People. If you circle right and uphill around the Warm Up Boulder, you will reach the amphitheater with Vice (on the Warm Up Boulder), Syringe (on its own boulder to the west), and Ode to Failure (on the west side of Drunken Master Boulder). The second downhill trail heads directly from Shotput to this spot. Mount Olympus is just uphill from Syringe, and further west and a little uphill is the Arete Boulder.

To reach Godzilla and Hank's Roof, follow a trail downhill from the Warm Up Boulder by Clutch. Sister Boulder lies just downhill from Godzilla. The Beast Boulder, Crystal Pinch Boulder, and the Lizard Boulder are around the east side of the Godzilla Boulder and a little uphill.
