Featured Route For Lower Slab

(14) Touch of Green 5.5 4b 13 IV+ 11 MS 4a  PA : Southwestern Highlands : ... : Lower Slab
A route similar to Cannabis. This one is the left of the two routes on this block.5.6 seems a fair rating, as this route is no easier than Eclipse (5.6) and distinctly more technical (benefitting from a backstep here, a gaston there, etc.) than the adjacent 5.5 (which, like Eclipse, enjoys a few no-hands rests). While neither of these lower routes are particularly exciting climbs, the view from the anchors is the best at Breakneck. (And they're the only two that get consistent sun!)...[more]   Browse More Classics in PA

As of 8/2012 the 2 existing routes on the lower slab have been upgraded with new hardware and ring shuts. A new climb has been added just right of the tree. It is the leftmost of the 3 climbs.
