Description Suggest change

This has several 3 star sport and trad routes. The rock and routes are similar to Yosemite. These slabs face south, and this area is nice in the cooler months. It is best to rappel routes from 2 bolt anchors at the top of each route or from trees. "Panic in the Grey Room" (5.10a) is a definite must do route, along with "Emergency Entrance" (5.6).

Getting There Suggest change

Go 5.1 miles up the canyon, use pullout on the left (best to drive a little further and turn around at the turn off to the Forest Service Ranger cabins). Infirmary Slabs (Upper and Lower) are on the north side of the road. Hike up the steep trail to the right and work your way up and past the Lower Infirmary Slabs, and continue hiking and scrambling west and north. Be careful of poison ivy as it is plentiful up here.
