Description Suggest change

This is a fairly fun place to boulder. It is in the shade most of the day, any day due to fact that it is only about three or four feet wide. Another long traversing area. Just choose your holds and make your way along the rock. Keep your feet less than two feet off the ground and avoid stemming behind you for an added challenge. Bring a spotter because the ground here is strewn with smaller rocks that could cause some ankle injuries. Expect holds that range from huge jugs to incut monos.

Getting There Suggest change

The Slash is located just to the left of Silver Spoon on South Gateway Rock. Just follow the base of the rock until you come to a corridor between the two rocks. You really can't miss it.

White Chalk is not allowed!

Suggest change
The Park staff want to remind the climbing community that white chalk (calcium carbonate) is prohibited in the park due to visual impact. While any chalk use is discourage, chalk substitute that does not discolor the rock may be used. Eco balls are sold at the Visitor Center.

When placing closure signange/notifications, our park rangers noted chalk stains on several routes in the closure area (Anaconda and Grapefruit Dance), as well as the Blowouts bouldering area (which were cleaned last year, meaning all the chalk here is new). We are again hoping that the community can come together and address this issue before it requires any action on our part. Access may come into play! We'd also like to thank the PPCA for their efforts to remove chalk stains in these areas last year and hope that local climbers might consider helping them remove chalk stains from the rock this season- check their website for more info on upcoming events- pikespeakclimbersalliance.o….
