Not sure what route I'm on here. Late seventies.
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'.

A Hike for Y2K is on the far right side of Blob Slab. It starts off a ledge with a 2-bolt belay anchor (accessed by a short 3rd-class scramble). This route looks like a complete slab; however, two bulges provide crux moves that are decidedly unslabby. The crux is in the first bulge - thin moves up the bulge on slopers and microcrimps (11+) lead to a decent edge. The main difficulty is you can't see any of the needed holds from under the bulge. After this, there is a similar sequence...[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!
