This block is located down the hill from the rest of The Knobs blocks. The climbs are very high quality.
From the approach trail, head right to reach the corridor between the Main Block and the Mungo Jelly Block. Don't go through the corridor, but head right between the Mungo Jelly Block and the Lickmaster Block. Continue past these blocks and follow a faint trail to the right of another block with a few routes to its end. Continue down over the hill until you find another block. Most of the climbs on the Far Block are located on the opposite side if approached in this fashion.
