Thanks Kelley. I moved it to a guess based on the text description, until somebody has a chance to share more exact coords. May 27, 2014

I saw 4 routes on this wall. I climbed the furthest left and the furthest right route. I think the grades go 5.8 - 5.10D - 5.8 - 5.10c. I have not climbed the middle two but saw people TR them. Sep 25, 2014

Found an alpine draw (being used for a hammock setup) at the base of these climbs that lost its owner. Apr 20, 2015

In case it was unclear, the Negativity Slabs are climbs 1-4 on page 4 of the handwritten topo for the Negativity Cave area.

Climb up the slab routes to reach the cave. As of 8/2/15, It look like there were two sets of anchors at the top of the slabs (i.e., the base of the cave), one of which has rap rings to lower off of. Aug 6, 2015
