Description [Edit]

Upper Slabs and Dodge Dart area is the far right side of the Spring Mtn Crags. It is comprised of a couple smaller walls separated by grassy benches.

The first routes are just right of the very prominent year-round waterfall. Starting with Vitamin R, Romantica, and Ticktock.

The Next formation uphill is the Dodge Dart Area. Its namesake is derived from an early season adventure on the slabs with some unseen patches of melting ice above the upper wall. As the sun hit the valley, a volley of softball sized ice chunks came down on the unsuspecting climbers. A solid whack on the helmet was followed by an interesting dance sequence by the leader.

Getting There [Edit]

About 35-40 minutes from the road.
Follow the trail up from the pullout. After about 20 minutes, you come to a couple of cairns that you'll pass, head right. Continue going up and right for another 15-20 minutes, where you should pass by a very prominent year-round waterfall dihedral.
