Comments: The easiest way off the top of the rock is to the climber's left (north) if looking at the crack from the ground.

Comments: Aside from the Slack Wall the routes and formations you're looking for don't exist - they are totally bogus. Look at the other listings on rc.com and you'll see even some of the properly named crags have bogus routes under them (the Pistol Whipped Wall is a good example).

The real issue here is putting your trust in the rc.com database - caveat emptor.

Comments: This line is a direct start to another route, Dick Enberg (5.11a), which climbs the tree next to the face before transitioning into the crack proper.

Due to the existing gear at the time the first lead of this route was done using pitons but as Brad notes protects decently with modern gear.
