This is one large piece of rock that has several good boulder problems on it. The first small hand/off-width roof crack you see is the classic Tiny Roof Crack (v4). To the right of that you'll find some solid easy to moderate climbs, including the awesome boulder problem Shell Station Swing (v4).

Getting There 

Walk directly up the steep hill from the highball parking. You can see this boulder from the road.
