Park at the pull-off for the Primo Wall, Nomad Cave, Crystal Tower and The Armory formations. The Seeing Squiggles Bloc is located directly below the Crystal Tower formation along the river. From the Primo Wall, it's approximately 100 feet downstream from the easternmost routes. This river bloc offers quality boulder problems for the adventurous boulderer who doesn't mind crossing the tyrolean with a pad on his/her back. The rock is very sculpted and polished and offers excellent sloper and compression problems. The problems range from V0 to V10 so there's plenty of challenges for novice, intermediate and elite climbers.
The easiest approach is crossing the tyrolean located by the Armory formation. Once you cross follow the trail toward the Crystal Tower and Primo Wall formations. The boulder is located along the river directly below the Crystal Tower. During the winter, the best way to get to the boulder is by crossing the ice bridge that usually forms right across from the Nomad Cave. Be careful not to fall in!
