Now I don't think anybody can hold a candle to that kind of approach detail!.
Is the rock pretty good? Worth the hike?

This is a potentially quality, moderate, area. The trailwork on the approach changed it from Mt. Olympus style bushwack to easy dirt scramble. The rock is definitely gritty, but the climbing is generally mellow enough that your not sketching your brains out. Most crack are shallow and with TCU's and tipped out cams to be common gear choices. Runouts abound, but generally seem justified.
Originally several of these lines were originally variations on each other. This place could be/is variation central. Hopefully these will be quality additions to LCC.
Oh yeah- I lost a digital camera somewhere up there in the void (HP w/busted screen). I don't care much about finding the camera but would love the memory card (if it ever turns up) and the pictures of the sasquatch I saw...

The history of this seldom visited slab began in the 1960's
"The first routes on these slabs were probably done by Ted Wilson, Milt Hokanson, Dick Ream, Rich Ream in September of 1963"
"Easy slab climbs made by the Alpenbock in the early 1960s."
