Noahs Ark because we finally got to climb after all the rain and snow.Start up Blocks to a dihedral with a fun and easy roof. Lots of big holds and great placements up the entire route.(I'm not sure if we were the first to climb this so if you know if it was done earlier, please say so and I'll change that info.

looking down the sunny side of black rocks

Be careful of loose rock on the top of the routesthere are a few that can do considerable damage if they're knocked off. My hand was actually broken by a football sized piece of loose rock. I recommend helmets within 10 feet of the base the climb. Luckily the hospital is only about 10 minutes away.
