|Angle Iron Slabs
This is the obvious slab on the climbers left side of the rocks. There are three nasty bolts if you wanted to lead this thing but I would not trust my life to them. The crux is the first ten to fifteen feet of this and itís not protected. There are five routes listed in Hubbel's guide in the same area as this climb, all are variations and end up in the same place after the first ten to twenty feet of climbing. Itís best to set up a top rope on this climb and just do all the variations down low, good 5.10 slab practice, and nothing more.
Thereís a set of old nasty bolts that we equalized and backed up by slinging a stout tree for a TR anchor. Just bring a lot of slings.

Is this the slab that has the angle irons sticking out at about 15' up? If so, slinging the tree and rapping will require a 70m rope. So the 75' route description is a bit confusing.
