BETA PHOTO: Don't let the low angle of Tricky Slab fool you ...
This low angled face has a start that is deceptively difficult if climbed in an obvious direct fashion. A small incut for the fingers, with two tough smears gets one up to another shallow incut. A couple more moves to the top.
Just past the Columbo Crack, one can tunnel through two adjoining boulders and view this straight ahead. This is the rock left of Vomitorium.

rating: 5.8+ V-easy
I think that 5.9+ or 5.10 is very liberal for this face. If you start right we felt it went at 5.8/5.8+. If you start left, maybe pushes to a 9. Either way this has the best down climb on the hill... 2 feet :)

That slab is the west wall of the vomitorium, with great problems all over it. I dont think anything is harder than 5.9 on it though.
The north wall has 2 bolts on top and variations up to 5.11.
FYI, The Vomtorium is the name of the whole alcove, not any route

Loved this climb...... tricky up the middle, easier on the right for sure..... slab parallel is nice to.
