BETA PHOTO: Boulder X slab

Description 

Climb strait up the middle of the slab on marginal holds to the top. Using the left arete bumps the grade down a bit. Climb strait up the middle to stay true to the grade.

Location 

When in front of Boulder X, it is to the left. The obvious slab.

Protection 

Have a pad and a spotter. The crux is at the top and and the fall from there is kinda high up.

Here is a little more description on the route. Starts sit starting on the obvious crack/flake. Rock up onto the slab make a few easy moves then comes the crux, really thin hands and really small feet, the crux is the move to the top and it feels scary because its a slab. Remember trust your feet! Don't use the arete to the left to keep it at this grade, using the arete brings it down to about V1.
