An amazing slab, the creme de le creme of slabs. Slabariffic. Alright, enough of that. Intensive Care is a south facing slab located high in the gully between the ?Church Buttress? and The Fin
. It is impeccable granite with a spattering of features, with the odd crack thrown in. The angle of the slab lends itself to 10-11 slabwork. Well worth the trip in its own right or, after descending from The Fin rappel, do a route or three.
Park as for The Fin
or Altered States
and take the trail up and west through the Altered States Gully. Drop down in and descend the gully and don't exit the gully too early. After exiting the gully follow the trail, or if you missed it, skirt the base of the Lizard Head Wall
and the Fin Buttress, until you reach a flat, gravelly spot with a slab above you. This is where the original CDFT route starts. Climb this adventure route to the slab or continue west around the corner and go up and in, staying to the west of the gully. Approach from the west of the slab.

Above the cracks either continue a ways (past another bolt) up to a clean cut ledge (big runout) or traverse right (safer) to a big pine tree. (5.11 R)The first ascent party boldly continued up above the pine tree to the top of the slab. To my knowledge this has never been repeated. Eve...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
