Description

BG identified a "short wall of grey rock" 9.3 miles from the Mall Road with a potential top-ropeable crack. Someone has been at work. The crack now has a nice chain anchor, a new bolted line has been completed, and at least one project is underway. The completed route left of the crack is difficult, superb, and ascends excellent rock.

Getting There

There is a large pullout immediately below the crag and located 1.6 miles from the pullout for Mary's Bust (a bit more by my odometer than 9.3 miles from the Mall Road intersection).

Parking

Parking is 1.3-1.4 miles west of Drake.

We were at the Salt Block on Sat, 9 June, and the route just right of the chimney appeared to be a work in progress with only a few bolts on a very blank looking face....... Jun 14, 2007
