These slabs lie just above the creek downstream from Lost Angel. Two fun moderate slab routes are here.

A. Mes Amis, 9-, 1p, 85', bolts.
B. Mary Lynn's Slab, 9+, 1p, 85', bolts.

This rock lies just south of Lost Angel Wall, about 15 yards from the creek. Hike downstream (south) from Lost Angel, on a trail just above the creek. You can also get here by hiking upstream (north) on a trail just above the creek.

Although I very much enjoyed the other waterslab route, this one is longer, more varied in the style of climbing (the other is mostly blank slab where this is slab, awesome arete and jugy face). Led this 2 weekends in a row now, very good route.

Be Careful!! The lefthand anchors (#1) are in a block that is pulling loose. I heard a deep "pop" sound when I waited the anchors in the block to rap and dust came out the right side. There is a fresh crack on the right side of the block where it is splitting. Don't TR the left hand, #1 route. Someone please fix... Don't fall on the last bolt on the right (#2), skip it!. Its in a very loose flake (who bolted a flake?). This was as of 06/15/02.
