This is another great sport route! Block Party starts on big jugs, which vanish completely beneath a smooth, vertical headwall. The crux couldn't be more obvious. Pull down on small crimps and try to find purchase for your feet, then trend up and right on broken ground. This is a good route for those who boulder a lot.

Apparently, this route was boldly put up on gear by legends Henry Barber and Charlie Fowler; bolts were added later by Antoine Savelli. The route is quite popular in its present condition. For those craving a scarefest, the nearby route Pine Box (next climb to the left) should deliver, at 5.10+ R.


This is directly under Goldrush.


Quickdraws, 6 bolts.

Awesome crux moves. Hold it together after the 4th bolt...some big runouts between the bolts up high. Caution on the blocks leading up to the's 25-30+ feet to the anchors after the last bolt on easy terrain.
