BETA PHOTO: The slab just left of the arete.

Description 

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

Location 

Adjacent to the old paved trail through the boulders above C4, just across from the Wine Boulder (Dominator).

Protection 

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
