The block. Looks hard. Can't wait to try it, pro...
This route climbs the large hanging block between The Nordwand and Fahrenheit 23. To start, climb the somewhat chossy chimney/inset to a good ledge in the left chimney near The Nordwand. This is where the climbing really begins and becomes quite good. From the ledge, there should be a small edge on the face of the block - grab this, establish on the face and start slapping up the block. And keep slapping, heel hooking, and toe hooking until one can reach the perfect jug at the top of the block. The actual hanging block is some of the best rock at the Dodge, but this is unfortunatly an eliminate (don't use the Fahrenheit 23 wall!) and merely a toprope. None-the-less it is exceptionally unique climbing and a lot of fun.
Located on the block between The Nordwand and Fahrenheit 23.
Toprope. Bring a couple long slings to tie off a huge tree at the top of the route.
