Slab City (Left)

California > Inland Empire > Riverside Quarry > (a) Slab City
Access Issue: Open, with restrictions: Park on the street Details

Description

The left side of Slab City extends from Diagonal Direct to Pucker Power (5.12b R) on the right.

This is an easily accessible portion of the Quarry with most of the routes starting from ground level and requiring little to no scrambling to reach the base. Routes here range from 5.8 to 5.12c and tend to be slabbier and less continuous than most of the Quarry routes, although exceptions do exist. Recommended routes here include the 1st pitch of Feetal Rearrangement (5.8), Mantle Marathon (5.10a), Shattered Dreams (5.10c), Peter Principle (5.11d).

Getting There

Once you reach the dirt road that paralles the base of the crag head left to the far left side of the crag. Plan on a 5 minute approach from parking on the street.
