Stairway to Heaven


Climb the large flake right of Slot Machine to a ledge. Move into left crack for harder, cleaner finish or move right to bush whack to the top. Good lead for 5.7, tricky gear.


SR, tricams are handy.

For a harder climb, face climb the bottom flake approx 30 ft, resting on the flake, then move left and face climb to the top. Beware of hornets!
