Tap N Stance

This is a slab route that runs past 3 bolts, a pin, then a final bolt. The crux is getting from the 3rd bolt to the pin. All of the bolts are old 1/4", except the one right below the crux which has been upgraded to a nice 3/8" bolt.
The crux is a diagonaling finger tips crack (flared) on slabby feet. This route had enough other features to make it a fun slab route, and worth doing. More ascents would help clean the route up a little more.
To get to this route, you can either hike to it by going right at the base of the GWI slabs. This is about 30m uphill from the base of Daddy Long Legs. You can also get to this from the bolts atop the second pitch of Daddy Long Legs. Simply rap to the base of the slabs that are off to the right of this belay/rap station. This route is just left of Toe Shoes, which is also located on this slab.
This makes a great finish after having completed the DLL to Evening Falls route. Rap off, then lead this pitch.
You may want a small nut (or a larger micro nut) to protect after the pin. A 00 grey TCU at the start can help you mentally get to the first bolt. 3 bolts, then a pin, and finally one more bolt to anchors. Can rap with a single 50m.
