The False starts on the chalked up blocky hold in ...

Description 

From a stand, matched on a left facing block hold, pull on with difficulty and climb up through slopey pinch holds to a juggy hold. From there move left to top out.

Location 

On the Block Party Boulder. To get there park at the south shore beach as you were going to hike the Balanced Rock Trail. From the parking, cross the train tracks, then stay right on the grottos trail and walk along the base of the talus and hillside. After a few hundred the trail will be right next to the talus field and a big boulder with a nice looking downhill face will be seen above. That is the boulder, and The False climbs the pretty face.
Approach time: 5-10 min.

Protection 

4 pads or more and a good spot

watched Ian on the FA of this one. a combination of tech and power, the rig has difficult smearing, tricky bumps and a sweet dead point. the holds are angular with comfortable thumb catches, very cool stuff. rally the pads and spotters and get on this!
