Mid-way up the route

Climbing areas reopened after flood MORE INFO >>>


This varied line is on the north face of The Slab, right where the wall begins to bend west and climb uphill toward Undertow. It can be recognized by the double-overhanging dihedral which caps it.

Intricate face climbing down low leads to ever-steepening rock and a thuggish roof. Crank the roof and move up into the corner, which may or may not be the route's crux depending on how you feel about corners. A final crank gains the anchors over the slab. This route is protected by 9 bolts.


11 quickdraws.

A good route that rewards technique more than brawn. More interesting move than many other routes on this wall.

It is best to have a bit of slack on the upper crux (by bolt 7) and provide a soft catch in a case of leader fall to avoid the lip of the overhang below.
