BETA PHOTO: Barn Block's west and south faces.
Barn Block's south face offers a host of vertical crimp problems and the north slab face has potential as well. The rock quality is fantastic, and the landings are a mixture of good and bad. There is an easy downclimb on the east-face, or drop down from the west-face onto the adjacent boulder.
This is located in the Pink Floyd Area. Follow the footpath south from the Main Boulder for approximately 40 yards.
