The Slide Zone is a transitional area above the sloping rubble pile that leads to ground level making this not the best choice for those with children, pets or poor balance.

Although this area has the widest range in ratings of any area at The Quarry, from 5.7 to 5.14, it's more appealing to the 5.12 and up climber as the easier routes tend to be lower quality or merely approach pitches.

Popular routes here include Supercruiser (5.12c), All That Remains (5.12d), Beautifful Disaster (5.12d) and Alpha Male (5.13a).

Getting There 

Located between Rubble Row and The Tall Wall.

Does anyone have info on the new routes in the slide zone? There is one route, on the right wall (to the right of a triangular slab) that is very steep, clean, and long. There are draws on it right now. Anyone know name / grade?
