Now that it's bolted the first pitch of Left Slab Crack is an excellent first sport lead. The second pitch is 4th class and rarely climbed.


Located just to the right of Ginger Snap. The first bolt is hard to see.


Quickdraws. Two bolt anchor.

unless something changed, left slab crack is still a gear climb. The bolt line your referring to is called night flight, 5.5 which is an awesome first sport lead, left slab crack is immediately right of this climb.

Correction to original post and additional clarification to comment below: Definitely a trad climb...decent first time lead at a 5.4. The bolt line to the right is Easy Reader @5.6...bolt line to the left is Night Flight @5.5.

Note for 2nd pitch...I've done this twice now. Be very aware that even though an easy 2nd pitch it is paramount to be cognoscente of and highly likely you'll dislodge a rock sending it down on those typically not wearing a helmet. Yes it is their responsibility 100% to take that precaution but none the less do you want that memory? Just be careful if so.
