The three one pitch climbs that are found on this slab very well protected by bolts and the odd cam . Ideal for those who prefer to stay away from the run out climbs, and get some experience with the rock and grades of the Reef. Starts to the left of the open slab first Bolt at about 20' See Beta Photo's.
P1) Follow 9 bolts to a high shallow groove trending left to double anchors . 180' 5.9
Three Fingers Canyon. Walk through the canyon and head up the talus to the right (north) to an open slab left of a long trending right steep wall. Same area as the climb Rat Catcher.

This was a good route it was runout on loose rock to the first bolt but after that it was well protected and good rock. I did not see where to place the 4 inch cam. over all my wife and I enjoyed this climb. Sean and Kim 11/6/10
