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.
