BETA PHOTO: Anna glides up toward the second crux of Tight Sla...


This route has two bouldery cruxes. The first one is probably easier for people over 6' tall. Start up the the obvious slabby flake to the left of Menage a trois. Stay to the left side of the slab and don't use it's right-hand lip. Now boulder your way up to the second bolt. You're not home free yet, continue up to the second crux 20 feet off the ground following the bolt line.

Listed as 6a under the French system.


This is the next climb to the left of Menage a trois.


Closely spaced bolts to flimsy chain anchor that it shares with Menage a trois.
