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.
