|The South Slabs
This is a top rope only climb. It is a slab with little pencil-eraser granite nubs to get some friction on. Stay in the black streak.
It was the hardest climb I did before I slowed down for many years.
This is in Craig Luebben's "A Climber's Guide to Greyrock".
Updated: I miss Craig.
Start about 10' right of where Fun Flake tops out. This is the obvious black streak on second tier of south slabs.
Two bolts at top. To protect with toprope: Climb up Grey Rat Rocksicle (5.8) about 20 feet right of Blackstreak. It slabs to a lower angle on top, traverse left over to bolt anchors on BlackStreak. Set toprope and enjoy!
