The Route. A). To Triple slab Buttress. B). Haste...
A fine looking slab located on the right side of the canyon entrance that is just right of Triple Slab Buttress formation.The route climbs a thin groove/crack system that forms the first two pitches. An excellent introduction to the slab routes one good quality rock.. Takes about 15 mins walk from the Three Finger Canyon road. Park about 1/4 mile back from the end of the Three Finger road.
P1) Up an easy open slab for about a 100' to a pro bolt in the shallow groove. Continue up the groove to double bolt anchors. 200'5.7R
P2).Straight up the groove, good pro, to an awkward move above an obvious hole . Above easier climbing leads to double anchors. 200'5.8+.
P3).Move about 25'up to the left and enter an easy groove . Follow this to a slab on the left of the summit. An small overhanging nitch (5.7) midway up the slab gives access to a fine summit and double rap anchors. 150'5.7.
