Nice big looking boulders!  I dont know about any of the problems, but you could just go in and explore.  Its litrerally 2 min from west side road.  Maybe ask IME for more info on problems

Many if not most of the boulders have been climbed on for many years. I remember toying around on those in the early 80's. I am not sure how popular they are now but I do remember a number of the locals doing many routes on them over the years.

there are some pretty nice problems there. not just the ones by the access trail either. they are worth checking out. there is also a big boulder down in the valley left of the cliff near the vernal pool. I think Jerry Handren worked on it BITD.

I've bouldered there a lot in the past couple years. Lots of problems in the v2-3 range and harder. Several great roof problems.
