The second line from the right on the West face of Building Blocks. Starts in a steep crack with good holds through a gear-protected boulder problem (easier for taller folk), then up easier terrain before a thrilling, well-protected roof. I won't give up the beta but it's a blast!

Listed as "potentially loose" in the Bingham guide, most of the Building Blocks routes have cleaned up to make it a top-tier City crag. The rock was generally excellent, with one obviously loose block in a crack but that was it.


Single set up to a 2 or 3 Camalot. The cruxes are well protected and short, so get on it!

Anchors are right next to Acid Rain's, so it's easy to toprope too.
