Description

The south face of Grey Slab features two easier 25' slab climbs directly above the surf. You can't climb either of them during higher tides.

You start both climbs by traversing left on easy slab above whatever is wet. Once at the first bolt, the 5.9 goes straight up and the .10a heads up and left using the left-most bolt.

The rock almost feels like sandstone and it isn't as solid as the rest of Mickey's but the routes are fun and their location out above the surf makes them fun on a warm day.

When cleaning, you can rappel or walk off the ridge to the right (~5.4). If you rappel, you're likely to get your rope wet when you pull it.

Getting There

Grey Slab is located 20' west and a little north of the main rock. The easiest way to approach is via the slab at the base of the north face of the main rock, then scrable over a few boulders.
