Description 

This block features great stone and is almost totally blank. Around 1999-2000 Josh Heiney and Jim Hausmann started working this steep thin dish. Both have since sent but I assure you.... if you go at it with this one it will be epic to the finish!!!

Getting There 

Take the Sisters trail over to the Land of The Slabs. Just before (about 30 yards) the "Over Easy block/Mineral wall" to your left or WEST you will see this lone block with a steep slab facing towards the trail. Go get some!!
