Starting the crux sequence on the first Ascent of ...


Start up thin moves to the first bolt, and continue via thinner technical climbing up to the second bolt. After the 2nd bolt the climbing eases as it ascends the slab via a thin flake sidepull.

Interesting moves passed the 6th bolt lead on up to the finishing moves and the anchors.

Good rock and solid technical moves make this the best of the climbs up the slab.


Middle of the slab, between Fall Harvest and Cleaning Lady


7 bolts, 2 ring anchor

Nice opening crux sequence that makes you think, actually you need to be thinking to get to the first bolt. After that it relaxes for a few bolts with climbing typical of "Cleaning Lady", then it kicks up again at the headwall.
