Description

The Far Side is pretty much as far West as one can get on Blob Rock. From the Radlands slab, continue West past Divine Wind to a separate face with five bolted routes on it. The Far Side is the furthest left. While this is a short route, it packs some tough and interesting moves. The Far Side is a well protected line on solid stone with two hard cruxes. If it were three times the height, it would get three stars.

Protection

Half a dozen draws and a rope.

Pockets aren't drilled - they're little granite water pockets. You can see that they're natural from the dark color of the rock and their shape. Surprisingly tough, crimpy exit. Jan 14, 2018

There seems to be cruxes both at the bottom and top of this climb. Looks like pockets may have been drilled up high. Nov 22, 2015
