Description 

Magnum Block is approximately 50' west of tree slab in the upper Morrison area. Recognize the block by a twin set of aretes on the south face over the top of an overhanging start. Most problems here start off of a triangular jug underneath, and slightly left of center.


Getting There 

Hike up the hill from The Lobby, past the Cockpit, and Tree Slab. Look for the double aretes with a steep face on the east side, and a lower angle slab on the south-west face with some very small crimps on it.
