Many of these boulder problems are not actually located on boulders but are part of the formation itself. They are located high on the formation. The hardest problems at Baldy's Lil-Brother are located here.

Getting There 

These boulder problems are located on the east side of the cliff. You can hike from either side of Baldy's Lil-Brother to get to these problems. If you are hiking down the trail from Baldy to the Organ Donor Area, these problems are high on the other side of the formation.

Amazing boulder problem out an amazing quartz roof. Start low with your left hand on a BAD pinch and right even lower on the arete.
