Description

East Blob is the rock just right of Blob Rock. It is composed of Blob Slab and the Upper East Face.

Blob Slab is home to runout slab routes like A Hike With Ludwig Dude (10a) and Crack Tack (10a) and one sport route, A Hike For Y2K (11d).

The Upper East Face has some great harder routes like Schizofrantic (11b), The Ticket (12a), and The Enlightenment (13b). It also has the most popular multi-pitch sport climb in Boulder Canyon, The Young and the Rackless (9).
