Where off of Riverside Drive is it? Also, are there any other good problems there other than the two mentioned?

walk the bike trail from the 42nd st lot. you can't miss this boulder. There is a bit more rock further down the trail from the whale boulder, but it pretty much sucks. there are many problems on this boulder-maybe five or so. Most are rather easy. There is an easier variation to the traverse that utilizes a pocket and climbs around the corner of the boulder to an easy top out-instead of out the bulge. This one is in the V9 range. There are some good easy problems on the egg and on the next set of boulders that are mainly in the V2-V6 range.
