Vodka Block is a great, free standing block on the ridge line with two classic lines. It is secluded with a better, arial view of the Valley and the Monument. The rock quality is great and matches the landing.

Getting There 

From Easy Block, hike up the trail to the top of the ridge line. Vodka Block is the first free standing boulder you'll see on the left hand side as you hike up.
