4 Blocks Wall.
This area has several short, easy to moderate sport routes and a few short trad options. It is shaded in the morning and gets good sun in the afternoon making climbing possible year round. The rock is decent quality Burro Canyon Sandstone.
This cliff is located about 1/2 way between the Ice Cubes (Thor Wall) and the Bone Park. From Whitewater, take CO Hwy 141 south approximately 4.5 miles. The pullout for parking is on the left hand side of the road in a small, easily missed drainage right before the highway takes a sharp right turn.
There no established trail to approach the cliff. From the parking area, walk up the gully/powerline road looking left for a rock cairn. From this, follow an excessive amount of cairns up to the cliff. The upper part of the trail is easier to find, and you arrive at the base of Lego Mania.
GPS coordinates for the Parking area are 38.93491,-108.48661

Thanks, glad to hear people are liking the new areas and that they will see some use. This area should get better and better as it's climbed and has a few more routes left to put up.

I don't think I see this one listed here. It is just around the corner from Red Corner.

Great area! We stopped here on our way down to Moab for some spring break climbing and were pleasantly surprised to find this area. Great bolting and all the routes were very fun.

Anyone find a pink pair of Scarpas there about a month ago? Along with a Nalgene?
