This rock offers some good moderate trad routes and morning and early afternoon shade. The approach is easy, the rock is good, and the climbing is fun. Most routes require medium size cams and stoppers.
Just before the green gate and The Kitchen a trail cuts south (right) leading uphill to the Bolt Slab. The north face of Bolt Slab can be seen right above The Kitchen. The rock has two distinct spires on top and two parallel offwidth chimneys extending the length of the face.

I'll probably roast for giving a clip-up like this three stars, but I'll never forget getting on it in 1985 or 1986 for the first time and loving it. For whatever reason, we had decided that this was the day to try and find out what the big boys were doing. But how to do that without getting totally waxed by the route? Grapevine beta and a hand-drawn xerox were the ticket to the world's safest bolt ladder, and we had no end of praise for the guys who had stitched it up.Laboratory safe 5.12 climb...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
