Description 

"A high concentration of classic problems from VB to V-hard take mostly plumb lines up several blocks scattered around the forest. Most of the problems are above flat stone slabs and all are right off the road. It’s no wonder that these are still some of the most popular boulders in Tuolumne." -Tuolumne Bouldering Supertopo by Chris Summit.
