Description

The left bolted route on the Block. Crux is near the top. The top of the climb is a bit contrived as the last bolt is way to the left of the second to last bolt then the anchors were back to the right. It's a good thing the route is so short or there could be serious drag issues with this route. The second to last bolt also had a very loose hanger on it. The bolt may need to be tightened down. Just something to beware of if you plan on leading the route.

Location

Left bolted route on the Block formation.

Protection

6 bolts/chain anchor

There is a bolt directly in line with the route just below the top anchors. I did see the old top bolt way out left, but you don't use it now. This way the climb is more like a 5.8 though. May 4, 2013
