Description 

Konnarock Block is a lot of fun, but not a destination by itself. If youre in the area check it out though. The arete problems are really fun, and the landings are good to go.

Getting There 

If you are ending your session here: walk past the upper overlook and pass through the Overlook Area, SLS Area, and Autumn Area... You will walk a span of trail without any climbable boulders and the trail will become steeper. Soon you will come to another small cluster of boulders with a taller egg-like boulder to the left of the trail. This is the Trails End Area, and the egg shaped boulder is the Trails End Boulder.

Walk past Trails End Boulder and further up and right is a massive boulder that is split at its downhill nose with a clean seperation. The block that has separated is called the Sever Block, and the rest of the massive boulder is the Sever Boulder.

If you walk uphill along the front of this and follow the boulder from there you will come to another, smaller, but similar boulder above it with a blunt arete. This is the Konnarock Block.
