slab move


This climb is a bit longer than One Step Forward since the beginning is a diagonal crack and the finish zigs off to the right(crux), then left at the end to the shared anchor. Slightly contrived to keep the grade at 5.9, if you end up finishing One Step Forward the grade is 5.7.


Starts 30 feet right(officially) of One Step Forward near the stone fence in the diagonal crack.


two bolts. gear can be used to get to the first bolt and gear can be used to finish the climb(.75-#1) but is not necessary.

Nice lead, with thin slab move after 2nd bolt. Short, but fun!

WARNING: anchor bolts have been smashed. It will be very difficult to get a carabiner behind them to clip.

Update: the bolts were replaced (big thanks to whoever did that!), and all is well.
