Description 

Griddle Block is big, and the north and south-facing overhangs are comprised of decent rock quality with good landings. Similar to what is found at the Texas Area, the rock has a sandy-texture that can make for a difficult but exciting experience.

There is a small down-climb on the boulder's southeast corner.


Getting There 

It is located in the same vicinty as Anchor Block and Horizontal Crack Boulder. It lies about 50 yards south of Anchor Block. Reference the page map for greater clarification.

Either start felt about the same difficulty, the lower start adds a few moves though. From there, work left to a gaston, then set and throw a big right hand to a good sidepull, work the feet up to the start holds, gain the left hand pocket and eventual shelf below the lip, and top...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
