Description 

This is a wandering slab climb with two boulder problem cruxes. It has sharp and tiny crimps on less-than vertical rock. This is not the most compelling route in the canyon, but it is worth it if you like slabs.

Location 

It is on the right end of the Whipping Post Wall. This route is mis-attributed in the latest Falcon Guide. It is route 14 as labeled on the photo - the right-most route (swapped with Laura).

Protection 

4 bolts.

Someone has to comment on this fun little climb . . . I liked it. Thoughtful moves on quality stone. Overlooked, as are many fine routes in the area.

This is a sweet slab! I flashed it, so of course it felt easy, maybe .11d? No pain involved on this one! Just good moves and perfect protection. Great rock.
