Description 

Bastion Block's slightly overhanging north-face is comprised of highly featured, high quality stone. The landings are mostly good, but there is however a juniper tree that lies behind the northeast corner.

Getting There 

From the small parking area just before the Black Wave Area's main parking, cross over CO Highway 141, head south for about five minutes, and you'll run into it. It is slightly hidden by a pair of tree and boulders.
