Note that this new area is not shown on the Mountain Project topo map of Jurassic Park. Slabosaurus is a wall located on the back (i.e., north) side of Big Ass Slab on the south side of a second gully that parallels the main first gully from which all other climbs at Jurassic Park are accessed after hiking up from Lily Lake. Slabosaurus forms a large alcove of sorts that is set back southwards from the second gully, and has four current sport and sport/trad routes. These new routes were developed by Tom Kohlmann in his quest to open up more moderate routes at Jurassic Park; see, for example, the moderate routes Byrontosaurus, T-Rex, Triceratops, and Lost Time at Jurassic Park. The two longer routes of Slabosaurus -- Donna's Dyno and Hallett's View -- are located on the long left-hand portion of the slab (as you face the slab), while the two shorter routes of Slabosaurus are located on the short right-hand portion of the slab (again, as you face the slab) and are accessed by climbing up onto a ledge that has a large dead pine tree perched atop it.

Getting There 

Slabosaurus is most easily accessed by climbing up the first gully past Edge of Time, and then continuing leftwards and around the upper edge of Dinosaur's Foot until you are heading downhill (west) in the second gully (which parallels the first gully). Slabosaurus will be found on your left about 150 yards downhill from the upper edge of Dinosaur's Foot. Look for a large dead pine tree perched atop a ledge, which marks the right-hand side of Slabosaurus.

Featured Route For Slabosaurus

Westward Ho 5.8+ 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c CO : Estes Park Valley : ... : Slabosaurus
This fun route is trickier than it appears. Hand and foot holds become thin between the first and third bolts. Take your time to execute proper move sequences and body positions. Trust the teeny nubbins for your feet and hands. This is NOT a beginner lead climb, and there is potential for a ground fall between the first and second bolts (right where things begin to get spicy)....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
