A looong sustained slab climb up nice smooth basalt. This route climbs the narrow slab between Sunday Bloody Sunday and Evil Paradise. Fun climbing, nice reassuring bolts, and great exposure.


12 bolts, 2 bolt anchor

This route was established by some combination of Mark Thomas, Tom Wezwick, Karl Kiser, and Chris Kessler. I'm pretty sure Mark was the mastermind of this fine route.
