Description 

clan•des•tine
   [klan-des-tin]
adjective
Characterized by, done in, or executed with secrecy or concealment, especially for purposes of subversion or deception; private or surreptitious.

Just as the name hints at, this tucked away boulder offers a few fun lines with a short approach that afford some privacy away from the heavily traveled Cascades Trail.



Getting There 

The Clandestine Block is back a bit and on the same side of the stream as the Waterfall Block. Hike across the first bridge and once over the bridge, hike back downstream, but away from the stream itself toward the hillside. You will see what looks to be a tiny, un-climbable block, but its rear face holds several fun ones.
