This smoothly cleaved slab is exciting and aesthetic. Expect typical polished Yos slab work. Another cool weather problem.


A pad or two.

If you lack any form of slab skills (such as myself), expect to put in a V5 effort to get anywhere on this one.

Classic moderate slab. We kept slipping off about 10' up and having to run down the slab to the pads. Great fun.

Some of the funnest falls I've ever taken on a boulder, expect to lose some rubber on your shoes if you do though

With some friends at this awesome Boulder and managed to onsight it. I thought for sure it was a V3 and they told me "nope V1." Really fun slab though.
