Small Package Block (SPB) has 5 distinct but very short routes listed in Mark Rolofson's 2000 guide, ranging from 5.7 trad to 10a sport to 11a trad plus two climbs listed as projects in the 5.12-5.13 range. All routes are by Mark Rolofson, including the two bolted projects, with the exception of the 5.7 Cough it Up which Mark lists as FA unknown. SPB is worth a short visit. Perhaps the best thing to do is stop there on the hike down from a multi-pitch route on the main Blob wall, eg, Tempest, On Ballet, etc.
See Blob Rock for the parking and the approach to Blob Rock. Hike up the approach trail to Blob to the base of the gully area. Walk left below the main Blob wall. You'll see a prominent right facing corner. That's Divine Wind, 11a. Continue gently uphill past a number of short sport climbs, some extremely short. That's Comedy Wall. Beyond that the wall becomes low angle and soon it becomes possible to scramble up and right. You'll see a small outcrop with three right leaning cracks, the rightmost having a prominent white streak on its right side. That's Small Package Block. You'll walk right past Small Package Block as you descend to the west from the top of the multi-pitch climbs on the main Blob wall, such as The Tempest.

CIA (Cannabis in Action) 5.10d CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : Small Package Block
CIA climbs the steep, right-leaning layback/jam crack just right of the arete that separates the left and right faces. I thought this was the best route on the crag. Although short, it felt like real climbing. I TR'd it on self-belay, and laybacked much of it with my left hand on the arete. It felt easier than 10d, Rolofson's rating, maybe 10b. Laybacking should be feasible on the lead, since there's a couple of good spots where you can stop and place gear....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
