A fun slab with a mix of everything, and a good place to get away from the crouds, Grouse Slab has excellent easy cracks, bolted slab routes, and multipitch.
Park at the base of School Rock or ASI and hike the trail north and east from School Rock past Star Wall, and head east toward the Lake. As the trail heads back north, keep moving east across a creek bed and a large open area, around the knob to the north. Grouse slab is on the east side of this knob.
