DescriptionCell Block Six is the least challenging of the three Cell Blocks (and maybe the easiest route at the Jailhouse Rocks). It is the center climb of the three Cell Block routes, which can be found on the west side of the creek, at the point where the creek makes a 90 degree turn to the east.
This route goes up a gently sloping slab, between the two overhanging rocks on Cell Blocks Eight & Nine. It is very easy and well bolted on good rock.
Note: Squeezing the Lemmon rates this climb at a 5.8, which is WAY off. Even the 5.6 rating is a bit overdoing it for this climb.
