Some big boulders right next to the parking lot. There are always tourists at the picnic tables gawking at you.

Getting There 

The boulders are clearly visible on the South Side of the parking lot. Take seven steps from the right parking spot and you will be at Sterno

I think there was a v10 ultra thin face that was done at the Porch area. That may be the hardest so far established, but there is definitely potential for some hard, tall arete problems.
