BETA PHOTO: Unknown 5.7
Very mellow sandstone slab climb with plenty of handholds. Starts out and goes most of the way on bare sandstone with gradually increasing varnish from about half way.
There are some hollow sounding areas, particularly to the right, so if you weigh in at 250, you might want to only delicately yard on the holds.
This is on the left side of the Ice Cream Parlor area. If the anchors above the left corner 5.6 crack are anchor #1, then this route climbs to anchor #4 (from the left). (There are another couple of anchors to the left of the slab area, but let's not complicate things). It is just left of a broken depression in the slab area.
5 bolts to hanger-and-ring anchors.

I was told by another climber at Ice Cream Parlor that this route is 5.7. I thought it was a little easier than what I'm used to at 5.7; your mileage may vary.

Felt 5.6 to me. Doesn't have as distinct of a crux as Black Slab, but overall felt like it had better quality movement. Might be a little heady for a 5.6 leader to get to the first bolt, but the holds are all there.

Felt 5.6 to me too. No real apparent crux

Some loose rock on this one. Be careful what you pull on and stand on. Especially the breaking ledge before the first bolt. Would hate to fall there.
