Around and left from The Angry Inch on the south face of the formation is this slab route.

Work up big holds at the start to a high first bolt and then make the crux mantle (5.10) which leads to easier slab climbing past two more bolts. The last bolt protects a short section of vertical face that guards the anchors.


4 bolts, chain anchors

If you're looking for "just one more route" this is a good choice. It may be low angle but the starting bulge packs a punch and puts your slab skills to work.
