DescriptionThe is the left-most of the three Cell Block climbs. The Cell Blocks can be found on the west side of the creek, just above the point where it makes a 90 degree turn to the east.
Cell Block Eight is a great climb capped off by an airy and committing move to get you to the top. The first 50 feet of the climb leads past 3 bolts on relatively low angle slab. At this point, rather than going over the roof to get you onto the "Cell Block", the route follows cracks along the right side of the block, where an exciting blind step takes you around to the face at the top of the climb.
This climb makes for an exciting moderate lead.
