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.

Start at some very small crimps at the west end of the south face, traverse past the triangular bucket hold, out to the make my day hold, and down to a recessed flat edge at the bottom of the east face. Reach up and establish both hands on a two-digit ledge 18" up the east face, and squat onto the bottom foot hold. Mantle high enough to place ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
