Description 

This is the obvious slab one minute from the pullout. Three bolted routes ranging from 5.9 to 5.10. This is deceptively harder than it appears. It is mostly thin, tricky feet.

L->R: 

A. Climbexia Nervosa, 10-, 1p, 65', bolts.
B. Coefficient of Fiction, 10-, 1p, 65', bolts.
C. NBD, Narcissistic Bolting Disorder, 10-, 1p, 60', bolts.

Getting There 

Walk up from the parking.

Stone Point/Slab/Rock lie 7.5 miles East of the Mall Road (in Estes Park) intersection, and exactly half way between the Jug Dome parking and Mary's Bust. There is a pullout on the North side of the road, right below the crags. Additional parking can be found 100 yards uphill or downhill from here.

Featured Route For Stone Slab

Coefficient of Fiction 5.10 6b 20 VII- 19 E2 5b  CO : Estes Park Valley : ... : Stone Slab
The middle of three routes, Coefficient of Fiction is a bit powerful in the start. The crux comes in the devious, but simple-looking slab. Looks like 5.6 but gets very thin and perplexing in the mid section. Solid all the way. A small amount of brushing above would clean up the appearance but not the climbing. Pretty cool, and more fun than Jug Dome....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Tried this area the other day, and was pleasantly surprised by its quality and thought-provoking, fun climbing. In case you haven't been there yet- the middle line seemed like the easiest, then the left one, with the right line being the pumpiest and most devious. Well worth a visit- good job!
