A good boulder to warmup on before heading over to the harder problems at the Meadows. From left to right the problems are v1, v2, and v3, with a v4ish linkup starting on the v2 and traversing right into the v3.

Getting There 

The easiest access route is NOT what is listed in the guidebook. I will try to describe. From Emerald Lake trailhead, follow the trail up about 1/4 mile until a social trail leads down right to the bank of the creek. Follow this to a log crossing of the creek. On the other side of the creek, a social trail leads uphill. Follow this until it hits an old mining road on which you take a left. Follow the old mining road up to the west. It crosses an established trail, just stay on the old road. The road leads you steeply uphill. Continue on the road until it levels out at a big clearing. Straight ahead is Way Lake. The Way Lake Boulder just to the east of the south end of the lake. The problems are on the west and north faces of this boulder.
