Approach

Description 

This is the large slab directly up and east from the Cookie Cliff. Home to many good slab routes from two to four pitches with the majority being three to four pitches. Routes range from 5.7 to 5.11
Not many people use this cliff, however, it is a great place to go if you are looking for moderate climbs down canyon. There are many of them here at the Cookie Sheet!


Getting There 

Park at the Cookie and walk up the talus to the right. Or park at the small pullout between the Cookie and Knobby Wall, and walk up the old road until you reach the talus. Follow the cairns. At the top of the talus head to the right and gain the left side of the slab.

Slipstream 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  CA : Yosemite National Park : ... : The Cookie Sheet
Slipstream takes a line of strength up gold polish on the far left side of the wall. There is only one bolted route to the left of it, Dark Side (5.7).It is best climbed in one long pitch, but you can stop and hang out at an anchor half way up if you want. This intermediate anchor also allows you to rap with one rope, or set up a toprope on the first 90'.I found the climb to be pretty sustained and one of the harder ones we did at the Cookie Sheet.

Great little area with a bunch of moderate and well protected apron/slab routes. Approach, bolts and anchors are all solid. Bob and Clint did a wonderful job here. Hats off to you both!

Most of the routes on the main face of the Cookie Sheet were put up between 2006 and 2008 by Dan Dingle, David Whitelaw, and Bob Steed. Dingle and Whitelaw, residents of Seattle, made 6 trips down here during those years to work on these routes. In spring of 2007 they met Bob Steed and the three joined forces to work on the development here. Later Bob and Clint added some of the crack lines located in the woods below the slab.

Fun moderate slab climbs. Gets sun until mid-day. Good place to climb if you are all burnt out from crack/ow climbing.

The first half of the second pitch of The Dark Side still felt like polished 5.7 to us, not 5.5. The second half of pitch two was 5.5.
