This is the area for the three large boulders that create a cove near the trail by Camp 4 (east). A lot of the problems here are great and I could not find the problems, nor the area, on MP. Most of the these climbs are coming from the SuperTopo guidebook.

Getting There 

If you are looking at the Upper Falls Trail head, turn right onto the path (heading away from the Great Columbia Boulder) until you pass the Kor Boulder. Go another 10-15 feet, and head left and up over some rocks. Another way: If you're facing Bachar Cracker, turn left and you see the cove on your right after about 20-30ft.
