Apollo's Block with the obvious wide crack Apo...

Description 

Apollo's Block features a handful of quality trad climbs, the most obvious being the 35' offwidth, Apollo's Crack.

Getting There 

Follow the normal Upper Rock City approach down Rattlesnake Trail. Continue on the trail all the way to the Tomb Raider Area. Apollo's Block is the 35' to 40' boulder directly behind you (towards the river) when facing Tomb Raider Block. A faint trail goes from here to the right side of the block where you will find Apollo's Crack.
