Private property with a public access easement and conservation easement allowing climbing held by the Access Fund. Critical to see current requirements and restrictions. MORE INFO >>>


A nice crack takes you up the column with a few off balance moves to reach the third bolt. You can step right to clip up and catch a no hands rest. Fire through the awkward roof, either with power or kneebars to a pair of good holds.

Make a large reach to a large block out right. Climb on progressively smaller crimps culminating with a difficult move to the "Pentagon" hold. Work up and left on bigger holds to a good rest (left pad helpful).

Get it all back and start up on the final crux. Work through the "Football" and the "Baby's Butt" and finally make the bump to a glorious right hand jug.

From here rest up and execute some easier but long reaches to the top. The anchors can be hard to clip.

The extension, Birdman of Alcatraz, goes through the wild roof above and is supposed to be quite fun!


Cell Block Six is in the middle of the main wall to the right of the trees. It is located between Electric Chair and Alcatraz.


All draws are fixed. 10ish bolts total
