A slab climb with delicate climbing down low getting easier higher up the wall. Great friction climb.


On the lower slab section, left hand side, just to the left of Super Slide.


3 bolts and chain anchor

Going up the arete to the right of the bolts is easier but we are thinking this is not the route. Looks like Accidents Will Happen is supposed to run straight up over the bolts and this is no joke, super slick slab. Felt it ran more at 5.10a/b
