Some large boulders lie in this small area, one of which hosts a few good sport routes. The rock here is excellent quality for bouldering. if only this small area were bigger. Clean solid granite here!

Getting There 

Hike through the South Seas as though heading to Old Baldy. When you come to the T in the trail, take a right and follow for roughly 50 yard's. Look for a faint trail on your right. Follow this trail. You will see the massive mansion sized boulder right in front of you.
