DescriptionThis area has several short, easy to moderate sport routes and a few short trad options. It is shaded in the morning and gets good sun in the afternoon making climbing possible year round. The rock is decent quality Burro Canyon Sandstone.
Getting ThereThis cliff is located about 1/2 way between the Ice Cubes (Thor Wall) and the Bone Park. From Whitewater, take CO Hwy 141 south approximately 4.5 miles. The pullout for parking is on the left hand side of the road in a small, easily missed drainage right before the highway takes a sharp right turn.
There no established trail to approach the cliff. From the parking area, walk up the gully/powerline road looking left for a rock cairn. From this, follow an excessive amount of cairns up to the cliff. The upper part of the trail is easier to find, and you arrive at the base of Lego Mania.
GPS coordinates for the parking area are 38.93491,-108.48661.
Per Michael Schneiter: the pullout for Four Blocks Crag is 4.1 miles from the road to Cactus Park, if you're coming from the south.
