Dave leading Directissima


From the base of Sunday Slab, Directissima climbs 100' past three bolts to a two-bolt anchor at mid-way. Rappel (you may have to leave a biner if its gone), or climb past two more bolts, then over a roof protected by a cam to belay at the top of the slab. Great route.


a half dozen draws and a light rack for the last belay.

Run out to first bolt. Slab-tastic for sure. I felt like my feet were going to pop the entire way. But not that steep so 5.7 rating is fair.

First bolt was slightly run out but not bad. The anchor at the end of P1 had webbing with a rap ring on it. Only found one bolt on P2 which had a sling girth-hitched through it with a carabiner on the end. The book that I have shows a two bolt anchor at the top which I never saw (might have missed it). Ended up traversing right, below the roof placing a couple cams, over to P2 of center crack. Clipped a bolt and finished at the two bolt anchor on P2 of that route.

I'd say a solid 40'+ to the first bolt (placed 4'+ too high so you can't clip from the easy stance also) - exciting for sure.

P1 anchor had a single small quicklink on each bolt. Not exactly a good setup for rapping.
