This is a large boulder cluster about 2 miles up the bear canyon loop trail. the main boulder (aka Lunch Rock) has 2 good crack climbs. the one on the left is easier and more of a boulder problem, the right is taller and sketcher, its in between highball and needing rope protection, both would be fun trad. Don't trust the bolts up there at all who ever placed them has no idea what they were doing, they will be replaced the next time i go, i almost pulled one out with my hands.

Getting There 

park in the same parking lot as san juan canyon across from the candy store. take the trail that starts across the street and look for boulders with small climber trails behind them. it's a long hike uphill and not worth it, if you're just looking to climb.
