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.

Featured Route For Blob Slab

Crack Tack 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : Blob Slab
This starts about 3m to the right of the right tree, at a flake which is fun to mantel as a first move. After the mantel, move up and right towards a bolt (1/4 inch, I think) then follow a left/up leaning crack. Climb straight up the slab to a crack which will take pro, and leads to the bolts....[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!
