Description 

This is a fun short slab route that was originally done with only the first 2 bolts. It finished up and left and around the small overlap/flake at the top to a s/s nut anchor that seems to keep disappearing. There was a 2 bolt anchor added, as well as a better and more direct finish, also protected by a new bolt. The old variation was slightly harder by going left at the second bolt (5.11-).

P-1 Climb up a short section of steepish rock to a high bolt (either stick clip, sling tree, or don't fall!). Note: There is a cam placement about 8' off the ground that some folks find useful. Continue up on some cool friction and small crystals to another bolt. A few crystals from the FA have broken making this whole section a bit less secure. Climb up and slightly right past some pockets (red tricam in one) to a stance and a 3rd (new) bolt. Continue up on good edges to a 2 bolt anchor (new).

P-2 Continue up and right on moderate ground to the top, or up and left into the belay for "Boot Hill".

Location 

This is the obvious short slab right above the right side approach trail.

Protection 

Very light rack, maybe a red tricam and a green or yellow alien size piece.

If you sling the tree, all you need is 3 draws and a red tricam. Fun, balancy and a touch spicy.
