  • Description 

    The Far Side is pretty much as far West as one can get on Blob Rock. From the Radlands slab, continue West past Divine Wind to a separate face with five bolted routes on it. The Far Side is the furthest left. While this is a short route, it packs some tough and interesting moves. The Far Side is a well protected line on solid stone with two hard cruxes. If it were three times the height, it would get three stars.


    Half a dozen draws and a rope.

    There seems to be cruxes both at the bottom and top of this climb. Looks like pockets may have been drilled up high.
