DescriptionThe Main Slab has several interesting routes, including the multi-star "Across the Universe (5.10)", "Hugo's Horror 'Revisted'"(5.6 / 5.7) and "Time-Space Continuum" (5.8) (originally entered as "Time Traveler 'Revisted'".) In the case of "Hugo's" bolted anchors were added, and an occasional protection bolt, to pretty much the original line of an ancient "X" route.
"Time-Space Continuum" is a new line carefully worked out to not touch older routes such as "6000 Salad Bowls", "Time Traveler" and "Ursa Major. "Time Space" has bolted anchors and "alpine" protection bolts.
Further right on the main slab are the often overlooked slab climbs: Star Trek (5.6) and its excellent variants "Lost in Space" (5.7+) and "Gamma Ray" (5.6).
Recent work has "re-discovered" the line of an "ancient", previously unreported full length route done in 1966. ("A Night Climb for Two Knights") but more importantly this work "uncovered" P1 alternatives to "Star Trek's P1" that are free of poor rock, massive lichen, and general ugliness. Other's have said of Star Trek's regular P1: "...you'll not be lichen this!"; but the alternates are on clean, solid rock.
