About The Leaning Block:

The Leaning Block is clearly visible from all of the roads around the Fox House Pub. It overhangs almost 20 feet in its 50 foot height. Once you are under the block, the angle tends to fool even the regular visitor. It has been said that routes on the Leaning Block never get wet! Routes are listed from the left side of the face to the right.
