Description 

Narrows Blocs are a long overlooked collection of large granite boulders located in the heart of the narrows. There is lots of potential for new problems if you're willing to build the landings.

Getting There 

Heading up stream from Stove Prairie Rd., you will pass the foot bridge on your left,. Then the boulders are across the river on the hillside before Icicle Canyon.

River Crossing is required, but when the water is low (Aug.-March), it is about knee deep if you pick the right spot. Some folks have been successful jumping rocks and using a log bridge.

Trail systems are still very rough to non-existent. The trails marked on the topo are the paths of least resistance.
