Ali Heiden climbing Essentials


Slab climbing that is Classic! Graham O adds: A classic slab climb that may be short, but involves cool holds, cool movement, and perfect rock. A must-do for anyone who likes slabs!

Start with high foot, balance up and find the rounded pocket, do a cool hand-foot match and top out on the jug.


Boulder southwest of Boulder X facing the marsh.


Pad and courgae not to cheese-grate down the slab if you botch the hand-foot match

This is really an outstanding climb. Really aesthetic and it climbs beautifully. In my opinion, one of the best of its grade at Pway.

I agree it's a great climb and is one of my favorite v1's in the park now that it has been downgraded. That hand foot match is awesome!
