|Buiding Blocks - East
The bouldery crux is encountered as you move through crimps and huecos around the 2nd bolt. Stay focused and give'er as you punch it through this low boulder problem- you will be rewarded with a full recovery rest in the horizontal break above. The climbing above the horizonatal break is 5.11 at the hardest and pleasantly steep, exposed, and airy.
This is the beautiful lichen brightened arete found on the north side of the Building Blocks formation.
Bolts with optional gear in the horizontal (big finger piece?) and a small nut/ blue tcu in a seam up higher. You also may want a stickclip.
