Green Slabs is a great destination if you are looking for moderate trad. There are only a couple of sport routes, and though they are worth doing, this area is usually less crowded than most. If you really want a clip-up, try Yurt Monkey (5.8). Otherwise, there are no lack of good gear leads on this crag. Many routes, yes even the trad routes, have chain anchors at the top, but don't assume!
Driving up the Catalina Highway, Green Slabs will be visible on the right near mp 10.2. The highway passes tightly between two large rock formations here. The formation on the right is the western end of Green Slabs. Park at one of the nearby pullouts and find a trail heading steeply uphill to the crag. The trail is well defined and approaches the crag from the southwest.

This starts way down on the west face of the main rock. Turn left at the main crag (at Monkey Business) and walk parallel to the wall until you reach a corner right above a layed down tree. The route starts in the corner. Traverse left five feet unto the face on great feet, then straight up and a bit right to a bolt 3/4 up the route, protecting as needed. The second bolt is quite a ways off to the left, clip it with a 4 foot runner to reduce rope drag and proceed up face to the chains. ...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
