This is the massive boulder in the middle of the area. Impossible to miss. I'm not sure what it's called but it has a few fun 5.10 routes on it and a few boulder problems at the base.

Getting There 

This is the boulder that the smaller Great White boulder leans on. The boulder problems are right beneath the routes.
