Sit Start on the far right side of the front, trail facing face of the Sever Block. The start holds might be hard to describe so look for the hold you shoot up to off the sit start. This hold is a medium sized, "flat baseball" type of drop stone, and is very smooth. It should be about chest height.
Sit start on two varied knobs, and shoot a right hand up to the aforementioned stone. Continue up through fun move that follow basically directly above the sit start to a dirty top out which I would recommend cleaning before attempting.
LocationAt the very end of the LRT (if you come down from the upper lookout past the MOW) this will be the final area before the loop is finished and you are deposited back to your car.
Alternately, if you simply hike downhill from the lower lot instead of hiking the normal loop starting at the upper lookout, this will be the very first area you come to, and it isnt very close to the lot.
If you hike down from the lower lot, look for the Trails End Boulder which will be on the right and just off the trail. At this point, you have passed the Sever Block (but the directions are simpler this way). Turn around and look to your left off trail a bit and the Sever Boulder & Block are there. This is the long, giant boulder laying long ways up the hill side which has the tip severed cleanly forming a separate smaller block. The Sever Block has a large dead tree that has fallen to rest on the top of it.
The directions are the same if you hike all the way around from the MOW Area. Hike past the Autumn Area and when you reach the next area which will be signaled by the Trails End Boulder (a large egg-on-its-side shaped boulder just off the left side of the trail). When you reach the Trails End Boulder, look up to your left off trail a bit and the Sever Boulder & Block are there. This is the long, giant boulder laying long ways up the hill side which has the tip severed cleanly forming a separate smaller block. The Sever Block has a large dead tree that has fallen to rest on the top of it.
