Description 

Certainly this is the standout area on The Hill. Tons of big boulders strew over the hillside. Many proud, tall, unique lines, with mostly excellent landings. Difficult to organize as the area is large with no defining features in the geography to help describe locations of boulders.

Getting There 

To reach (most of) the stones: A faint climbers trail leads uphill from a grassy knoll on the north side of the parkway, where the road makes a sharp turn south of peaks of oter. From this trail you hit (in order) seamless, values, bull, steves, burlstain, mafia, hunting, pediatric, geriatric, den, 500, sun, fortress, and finally bastion boulder.

This may help.... Trail probably is covered in leaves, but should be easy enough to folllow if you find the start of it.
