Description 

The left side of Slab City extends from Diagonal Direct to Pucker Power (5.12b R) on the right.

This is an easily accessible portion of the Quarry with most of the routes starting from ground level and requiring little to no scrambling to reach the base. Routes here range from 5.8 to 5.12c and tend to be slabbier and less continuous than most of the Quarry routes, although exceptions do exist. Recommended routes here include the 1st pitch of Feetal Rearrangement (5.8), Mantle Marathon (5.10a), Shattered Dreams (5.10c), Peter Principle (5.11d).

Getting There 

Once you reach the dirt road that paralles the base of the crag head left to the far left side of the crag. Plan on a 5 minute approach from parking on the street.

Broken terrain past a bolt gains a ledge and a tricky stand-up move along the arete past the 2nd bolt to get established on another ledge. The crux is above the third bolt as you lock off some good edges on either side of the arete to gain a curving edge and clip the 4th bolt. Past this a reachy move to steep jugs leads to a final ledge and a finishes up a thin slab to anchors.Fun moves on this but the numerous ledges break up the flow of the climbing and detract from the overall experience.
