  • Description 

    Often overlooked, most climbers brush past The Block on the way to Tiger Stripe and Fat Grips, but the climbing here is worthwhile. Several problems ranging from slab to vertical

    Getting There 

    The trail forks around this boulder, about 75 yards northeast of the copperhead/all thumbs boulders. Taking the left fork brings you to the Tiger Stripe boulder. Taking the right fork brings you to Fat Grips boulder. Both aren't more than 15 yards from The Block.

    Start low on the undercling/sidepull features. An awkward start leads to fun climbing on sidepulls and big crux move to the lip. One of the first problems in the area, saith the black bible....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
