A real classic that now is quite dirty.Best 5.11 slab on the cliff ?

From a two bolt belay move up through an overlap (no pro) to two bolts then up to a third bolt (nice stance) skim left to minimal stance and #4 crux to a small ledge with one final hard move.

Classic hard slab climbing with nice whip potential. FIVE days including 3 for cleaning with the wire broom.


Just right of the flush, rap 110, to bolts.
WARNING- I have no idea if this climb has been done/ cleaned in years but it sure is worth it.


5 bolts, tree anchor

It's pretty dirty these days. I've rapped down it to get to Northern Hospitality and I've marveled at the lack of both holds and pro. It looks to be an impressive lead that no one has repeated in a long time.
