BETA PHOTO: Starting crimps of The Blocks Direct!
Climb the grim crimps up middle of Triangle block, V3 boulder problem, until it becomes possible to grab and mantle apex of triangle. Good rest at half way point here and only opption for pro to protect the headwall BP Crux. Even though protection is bomber you will deck if you blow the crux mantle.
Can also be TR safely.
Starts on obvious Large triangle block just left of the start of the Blocks. Crux climbs thin side pulls between top of Knob Job and The Blocks.
Cams .3 .5 .75 and stoppers to #9.
Can protect the finger crack entering the blocks crux, then down climb back to keystone will result in a bad swing. Guess it's better than decking. Also watch getting clipped by top of Triangle Block would be really bad to flip upside down from catching this feature.

Wouldn't a couple of bolts make more sense than the gear in the finger crack shananigans?

this is not a route. It's a climbable feature a couple of feet from a 5.4.
Toprope soloed it into submission during lunch break.
