The Slicksides Pit is one of the most unique climbing formations in the park, a giant Pothole 15 feet deep. It hold several classic highball boulder problems which are more frequently top-roped. Slidesides is a deviously slippery and challenging V0, next to the thrilling Lunge Or Plunge (V4).

Getting There 

Walk from the Park Office down to the river. Once at the river walk left up the trail on top of the first rock formation and behind it and down into the Slicksides Pit.
