  • Description 

    Blob Slab is the smooth, low-angle, granite apron on the left side of East Blob. Most routes here are runout slab climbs established in the 1970s. A few bolts and a few gear placements are available, but leaders should be confident making moves above pro. A 2-bolt anchor exists at the top of the slab at the top of A Hike With Ludwig Dude; this can be used to set up a top rope (60m recommended).

    One modern sport route is here: A Hike For Y2K (11d).

    Routes from left to right:

    A. unknown TR, 7 R, 1p, 90'.
    B. Left Roof, 8 R, 1p, 90', gear.
    C. Old Route, 8+ R, 1p, 90', gear.
    D. A Hike With Ludwig Dude, 9 or 10-, PG-13, 1p, 95', gear & bolt.

    There are a lot of routes on this beautiful slab which sort of run into each other. This one starts a few feet to the right of the right tree.... Thin face moves, head around the left of the bolt on the face to stay on the route. There is lots of fun smearing and such....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

    Don't depend on Bob's guidebook for accurate info on this wall. There are a few climbs that are mislabeled in the topo!
