A unique section of the Building Blocks, the west side is home to some of the more mellow routes at the crag and also some of the still-standing test pieces. Climbed since the late 60's, some of the routes here are still a bit loose, but for the most part, everything is solid.
Approach from the Circle Creek Overlook parking lot/TH. Follow the double track road passing through a gate and out to the center of North Fork Circle Creek. Building Blocks - East is the crag set near, dead-center.
