BETA PHOTO: The Exit Wall Slab.

Description 

This is a short, but enjoyable, eliminate on the west-facing wall immediately left of Exit Wall.

The line ascends the black streak utilizing primarily tiny edges and sidepulls, along with a couple shallow pockets near the top of the problem - hang on through the slope-y, fun top out.

And, since this is Rotary Park, no problem would be complete without a couple "rules" - the left edge of the slab houses a small left-facing corner - any holds within about 18 inches of the mini-arete are "off" for full value V2; this basically eliminates a nice starting foothold and a bulge-y feature about 8 feet up the wall.

Protection 

The landing is rocky and a little steep, but looks worse than it is; in all likelihood you won't be dyno-ing up the slab. That said, a pad is worthwhile.
