Description 

The this area is host to many of the best of the best for the LRT... Some of my favorites are Mouth Of Wilson, Escape Form Alcatraz, Paladin, Ballad, Bicentennial Arete, SLS, Nancey, Cold As Ice, Kitten Mittens, Shang High... I feel like I could go on and on but I stop there and just let you see for yourself. Every time I walk down to the SLS Area I feel like a fat kid in the Willy Wonka factory.


Getting There 

Stay on the trail past the hive and the short little Foggy Mountain Fin. The trail will promptly make a sharp turn to the left. as you round the corner you will be in the SLS Area. The massive, double-decker boulders that look like a big mouth are what we collectively call the Mouth Of Wilson. The bottom is the patio, with lines like Heavy Footed Swagger, the top has the MOW lines.
Continue past Alcatraz, Mike-N-Ike, Pit-Fall, and you will see the huge SLS roof. A few yards past this off the trail to the left is the Cold Boulder, and into the open forest to the right is the Feline Fin... continue down the trail a ways and you will come upon the last boulder in the SLS Area which is the Shang-High Boulder.

S.L.S. Boulder: Classic! Shane Messer did the impressive First Ascent of this line in 2009. The problem then went two years without seeing another send until August 2011 when Aaron James Parlier gained the 2nd. Matt Bosley claimed the 3rd ascent on Sept 13th 2012."S.L.S" starts far, low, in the back of the large, overhead, ominous roof. Match hanging on the low rear ledge on the middle two "knobs" with a heel hook out right. Reach out to the first and then second pinches (same as "Nancy").
