The west face of Building Blocks...

Description 

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.

A hangout for names such as Greg Lowe, Tony Yaniro, and Dan Sperlock the climbing here tends to be bold. Expect to find both traditional and bolted lines, with climbing on the spicy side of things.


Getting There 

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.

Start on top of a large flake and follow a few bolts to the base of the column. A long runner is helpful here. Follow well spaced bolts up crack and face climbing. This section is slightly overhanging and is the best part of the route. Wild moves and exposure leads to a bolt anchor. You should consider rapping or bringing long runnners for the anchors. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
