This is the bouldering area directly above the campsite to the southt on a slighlty higher level. You can easily walk to this area from the campsite. Find the bridge over the stream in the campsite, cross it and walk left for about 40m until you see a small cairn next to the dirt road. Follow this path up the hill for about 100m until you get to the Teapot boulder. This boulder only looks like a teapot when standing south of it and looking towards the campsite.
