Description

This area features some great top ropes and even a few single pitch aid lines. A few of the climbs are really fun and have excellent rock quality. Some of the longest climbs in all of Mount Rubidoux are found here. About 50 feet high. The face gets morning shade, but is in the sun all afternoon.

Getting There

Directly under the big cross on the west side. Just follow the road north from The Island. The rock will be up and to your right.

First ascent of the center route on the Slab was by Robs Muir, Jim Hoagland, and Ben Borson. The second ascent was by Paul Gleason the following week, after he finally bought a pair of PAs. Oct 6, 2016
