Description

The Slash is a short, right trending crack on the second tier of routes, about 50 yards right of Insidious Crack and Jellyroll Arch. Look for a bulging wall followed by the wide crack. Scramble up to the base. Rap from bolts.

Protection

light rack - cams to 3" worked well

Rap'd off the rusty and spinning rings the other day and I didn't die. But they certainly don't inspire confidence .. and walk off options aren't the most desirable. Also, while the runout after the gear definitely eases, I wouldn't call it a gimme. Nov 28, 2015

Decent route. While it is not possible to place gear on the last 15ish', the climbing does mellow a few feet past the last traditional placement, and it would also be possible to traverse a few feet right and place a long sling on the fourth bolt of Unknown. The anchor on top is a bit rusty, and on of the bolts is a spinner, but they are actually ring bolts, so you can rap off. Jul 3, 2012

Upper section has no place for pro. Rap bolts on top are a little rusty, but seem to be okay. Newer bolts are on the ledge to the right. Not the best lead, good place to set up a TR if you can reach the ledge. Jun 19, 2010

Super easy on the first 1/3, gets a bit harder in the middle. Bolts on top of this climb are SKETCHY and need to be replaced. Although there are 2 bolts on the top of "the slide" they do not have chains or rings. Oct 11, 2009

The Slash is a fun trad route that protects easily with small to large cams to the top of the obvious wide crack. From the ground, the upper section to the anchors looked a bit hard and runout and would be hard to protect. Although there is no protection, the climbing really eases off and is not a problem. If you are not up for leading the climb to the right (called Unknown), the anchors for The Slash make a perfect toprope. Jun 25, 2006
