Description

The featured attraction in this area is a north facing rectangular granite monolith about 100 feet high. The granite is as solid and smooth as you will find in Josh. In fact it bears a resemblance to slate! Witch Hunt (5.10b) and South of Heaven (5.12d) are bolted climbs that ascend the lefthand and righthand aretes respectively. Both are classics. Devil's Advocate (5.11a) begins in an offwidth just left of Witch Hunt and ends in a discontinuous horizontal seam (3 out of 5 stars).

Getting There

The easiest approach to this area is to follow the directions to Valley of the Kings. From the Helmet, walk east for 1/2 mile across the valley floor to the gully that is just north of the Corrugated Wall. The Slatanic Area is "around the corner" from The Corrugated Wall and near the top of the gully.

The bolted anchor atop the formation was replaced courtesy of the ASCA with 1/2" stainless hardware in 2013.
