Description Suggest change

The right side of Slab City extends from Chaste, but Tasty (5.12a) right to Pleasure Dome (5.10b) which lies below the (b) Metro Sector above some talus.

This area starts on ground level and as you move right the routes starting above a sloping talus field which requires a bit of a scrambling. Climbs here range in difficulty from 5.7 to 5.12c with most being somewhat slabby or following crack systems which require pro. Recommended routes here include White Light (5.7), Pleasure Dome (5.10b), Lovely Lady (5.10c), Pity Committee (5.11a) and Synchronicity (5.11c).

Getting There Suggest change

  • Plan on a 5 minute approach from nearest parking.
