Description

Blob Slab is the smooth, low-angle, granite apron on the left side of East Blob. Most routes here are runout slab climbs established in the 1970s. A few bolts and a few gear placements are available, but leaders should be confident making moves above pro. A 2-bolt anchor exists at the top of the slab at the top of A Hike With Ludwig Dude; this can be used to set up a top rope (60m recommended).

One modern sport route is here: A Hike For Y2K (11d).

Don't depend on Bob's guidebook for accurate info on this wall. There are a few climbs that are mislabeled in the topo! Jan 23, 2012
