The route just right of Brewed Awakenings.
A good way to limber up, the Black Slab is a mellow trip on a low angle face.
Hosting an extra bolt or two more than its neighbor, the Black Slab has good climbing with good stances, good rests, and offers a forgiving introduction to Ice Cream Parlor's slab circuit.
Start just right of the gully for the easiest version or go direct for the slightly more difficult beginning.
Set on the left side of the middle wall is the Black Slab. It is directly left of Slab .7 and just right of the small gully and Brewed Awakenings
Draws and/or slings for six bolts and an anchor.

nice slab at the top right. If you stay under the bolts I think it't more 5.7 or 5.8ish. Nice rock and area.

A nice warm-up for the crag. Maybe a good first lead as the climb is well-bolted with many rests. Crux is at the top.

Great slab climb. The guidebook says the direct start is 5.7; I thought it was more like 5.8+ or possibly 5.9.
