Description

Big Blocks are the huge blocks across from Sunset Wall. The routes here are organized as being on the "shady side" facing sunset wall or the "river side" facing the river. This area features several toprope climbs, a few quality leads, and a few boulder problems on the river side. The top of these Blocks can be accessed by leading up one of the protectable routes. The easiest access is via the Access Crack (5.2) on the NE side of the block near where the trail brings you in. There are a few trees on top that can be used to rappel from or set up toprope anchors. You might need as much as 50’ of webbing or static rope to set up some of the toprope climbs.

Getting There

From the main parking lot, follow the trail by the Climbers Kiosk out past the main roadside bouldering area. After a few minutes of walking you will come to a 20’ - 30’ cliff on your left. This is Sunset Wall, Big Blocks will be just ahead on your right.
