One boulder sits on top of the other. The upper boulder is a nice vertical section with a few climbs and is probably one of the best boulders to warm up on. The few climbs here are full of good movement on really nice jugs that don't shred your hands. The lower Boulder is a nicely overhung section of decent climbing low to the ground. Topping out the lower boulder can be sketchy as you climb through a section of seemingly lower quality rock.

Getting There 

As you hike up the main trail and find yourself at freshman boulder. Take a right and descend down the hill taking a currently small deer sized trail through some fallen brush . It will level out and lower boulder will be to your left. If you decide to walk left down the trail you will arrive at upper boulder with lower boulder as your platform. You may also cut right onto another deer path from the main trail.
