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).

A. unknown TR, 7 R, 1p, 90'.
B. Left Roof, 8 R, 1p, 90', gear.

Your appreciation for this route will be directly related to your appreciation for thin slab. I personally liked it. Go to the Blob Slab, the light-colored slab at the left hand side of the base of the right hand 'half' of Blob Rock. Walk down to pass two trees and a 2'X2' block of rock at the base that looks like a Tetris puzzle piece stuck to the cliff. Maybe 8' right of there there is a vegetated ledge (left-most of two) and a thin right-leaning seam going up from the right edge of it. St...[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!
