there is a small boulder with 2 low balls up and to the right of the brain boulder. both started to the right of a small tree that was against the boulder. left problem was Dig Deep V6ish by Quillen and involved a hard left side pull move. the right problem was done by Behrens and was a little easier but I don't have its name recorded.
