Keeping you on your toes- the tricky upper slab.


This climb is the 3rd bolted line at Industrial Wall. It starts easier than the 10's on either side, but the roof creates a problem. Once solved the upper face is good and consistent.


White Collar Redneck requires 8 draws for the route and 2 more for the top.

Climbed this on TR about a month ago. I was beat from climbing about everything else on the wall but the route looked to nice not to try it. The first slabby part is probably easier than the ones on either side, but once you get under the roof the business begins. It looks small from the ground, but the holds on the lip are not too great (right hand crimp has a knob on it that prevents you from getting more than 2 fingers on) and the feet are low and slippery. The move to reach the slot is fairly long (I had to do it dynamic) and then matching in it seems unlikely. Crazy balance and a hand heel match on the sidepull helps :) Once you're over the roof you can breathe but only for a second: the slab is not too steep but is truly 11b, and the holds are few and far apart. Hand-foot matching everywhere, a lot of smeared feet and thin crimps got me to the top. I'm still surprised I didn't peel right off some of the moves !

That was a good description. Great route!

I think this is the best route on the wall. Pulling that roof is amazing and the slab above is crazy good. Hand foot matches on little edges.....perfect. Union Dues is really good, but this one is even better.

For me, the roof sequence had to be executed quickly and precisely and then the slabbiness begins! What a slab indeed. Trusting in those feet, staying calm, remembering to breathe, and committing to a move once you've decided on it is key. Super Rad Route!
