This is an awesome block on the way into the Redrock climbing area. It is right on the main trail which leads directly past/to Pink Floyd Wall and also Main Wall and Master's Wall. It's extremely clean and well established. Being no more than 100 feet from the highway, it is a little loud from cars passing by but offers some great moderate-hard problems.

Getting There 

Follow the main trail up from the parking lot of Redrocks. Pass the storage units (and the right turn towards Down Under and Oz), follow up the hill, and you will find this block right on the trail.
