This area has a few scattered boulders that host a number of problems on each block. The majority of the problems are V4 and under.

The rock quality is not the best, and some of the problems are a little crunchy. This may improve as more people visit.

The closest boulder is 500 yards from the road, and the others are over 1 mile so plan accordingly and remember to take some water.

Getting There 

Drive 1.8 miles from the park entrance and park up on the left. Alternatively drive 2 miles from the park entrance and park up on the right side of the road and a small first turn out.

The outer rim is located on the north side of the road.
