My first time on Tree Slab.


Tree slab is actually just a little slab near a tree. Several problems in the very low V range can be found along with slightly harder variations. Tree slab is a great place to warm down after getting pumped in the "Hole" or a nice shady spot in summer. In addition it is often a little quiter than the Lobby etc.

Getting There 

From the Lobby, proceed up the hill along the base of the cliff to the west. After scrambling up a low angle slabby rock, you will find yourself confronted with the slab and its tree.

Roof Problem V2 5+  CO : Morrison/Evergreen : ... : Tree Slab
This is located in the little alcove to the right of the Tree Slab face. Start from some chalked underclings with your feet on a slab with a crack running through it. Move you right hand up to the sloping lip. Pull up with the left to a small crimp on the left side of the little arete. Heel hook right and go for the top.It has a back breaking landing on the boulder below without a spot. This has good, positive holds, fun moves, but it is short....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Once in the early spring I was piddling around on the tree slab. I heard something and turned around to see two rattlers hanging out on a little boulder just behind me. It was too early in the morning for them to react to me, and they headed for cover in the cockpit. I had often heard of there being snakes in the cockpit, but until then I didn't believe the rumor.
