Linking the small blocks to the far north up to the Canada Boulder and returning via the "Gang of Four makes an fun and interesting circuit. Canada Boulder is very much the highlight, but the landings are generally benign and the circuit is a good one for the solo boulderer sans mat. Start from Boardman's Boulder. Guidebook page 111.
