Description

This line climbs like a 4-star route, the movement is superb! The hanging block will make people think twice before heading up it and that is why I only gave it 3 stars. Several people pried, hammered, and pulled on this block and couldn't even get it to creak. No sign of any movement so we decided to just climb over it.

The route starts up a bulge on an arete and moves left onto the face through some great features, up towards a scary looking hanging block. Traverse left on blocks and ledges up to a rest, clip a fixed draw, and pull the upper bulge/roof to an easier dihedral finish.

Location

right of 1000 yards of drift, just left of City Girl.

Protection

bolts--8 plus fixed draw

Block of Life is a great route indeed. One could step left after the crux to a stance and shake to then continue up A Thousand Yard's of Drift for a longer and therefore pumpier line. Maybe 5.12b? Jul 28, 2015
