Description 

The Bison block is a good boulder to test your slopers on. Great quality stone that is slightly bulging on slopers. Sits close to a lot of other developed blocks and i believe the lower path runs right by it. This block sits right below the cliff line and north of The twin Planets area but close proximity to them as well.

Getting There 

Either stay on top of the cliff line and follow along the cliff past The Twin Planets Area for a minute or two. Or until you see the next concentration of blocks. This block sits right below the cliff line the problems face down hill.

Climbing Season
