Sever Block is unique and host to several easy-going, fun, short boulder problems. If you haven't been climbing long, you'll enjoy checking this block out, and ending your day here. the holds are knobby and crimpy and inside the split is a slab face with multiple short slab lines that are as soft as your puffy jacket...

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.
