Description

This is a cluster of huge blocks tucked against the base of east face of the boulder pile. Thin Vice (5.11c), the namesake of the area is a short, but technical seam up a north-facing block - perfect for warmer weather.

Getting There

Approach as for the Love Nest block, but instead of turning off for those routes continue east on a good trail that leads to the Planet X area. Once even with the eastern edge of the rubble pile that the Love Nest is a part of, make a left (heading north) and look for a large round boulder about midway along the east side that's set back slightly (this is directly below the highpoint of the rubble pile). Scramble through brush and a small cave past the base of the Accidental Purist (5.10a) and then make a quick left to reach this short north-facing wall.
