Description

The Slab Routes are a collection of popular (for Rifle Arch), well-bolted moderates on a slab of dark rock. Above the anchors for the single pitch climbs are a couple of bolted routes that continue above as well as many opportunities for adventure.

L->R:

A. 3.14, 9, 1p, 85', bolts.

B. Andy Wants Some Candy, 10a, 1p, 85', bolts.

C. Ladies First, 10-, 1p, 70', bolts.

D. Unknown Wanderer, 9, 1p, 80', bolts.

E. Jimboliar, 8, 1p, 90', bolts.

F. Methane Mic, 8, 1p, 85', bolts.

Getting There

The Slab Routes are the first routes you come to on the climber's trail that branches left from the main trail. When hiking up to the arch, go most of the way to the arch, then look for a climber's trail going left that contours along before heading up to the base of the wall.
