Description 

Hourglass Block:

This is on the back wedge/arete in the back of The Room on the LRT that looks like the top of an hourglass...

Walk from the Visitor Center parking past the top look out, up the small stone steps, and you will come to a cave-like overhanging cluster of boulders to your right that has a boulder on the left with striking quartzite tiger stripes. youre in the right place.
the wedge in the back is the structure in focus.

on this problem, sit start at the bottom of the arete, right hand as a sidepull/pinch on the smooth side, lefthand as a crimp on the ridge/rail. move up with a right hand to the next sidepull/pinch along the right side of the arete. go left to the front face where there is a flat spot to hold onto. gain solid feet and move into a right hand flat spot beside the left hand one. bump a left hand to the small knob and use the boulder to the left for feet. move left and out to walk off the left boulder (the one with tigerside/nexus/bengal/crucifixion)... there really isnt a top out on this problem at all...
