I love slab. I love this route. One really key foot is just below the first bolt, I found it was easier to do a single biner rather than a draw in order to hit it. Once you pull the bulge, go up Despreado. You can go over left to lower it a few letter grades.


TR from the anchors for Diamond (note multiple anchors . . .) or use the 3 bolt lead.

.10C variation left of the Bulge...Fantastic thin friction with buttery, stretchy moves....makes the 5.8-5.9 face climbing above the Bulge seem like 5.2. Feb 11, 2004

Some seriously finger hurting thin smearing. Trust that left foot! Apr 11, 2011
Jim, Cant agree more that bulge makes your fingers scream. Fun Route! Sep 9, 2012
I did the single biner on the first bolt as Kristin suggests and it worked well. I pre-hung a (really) long sling off the second bolt of diamond to avoid a potential grounder for the leader (me). Probably 5.8 slab terrain in the ground fall zone getting to that second bolt of diamond. Not sure if I got into the "10c variation left of the bulge" or not. Either way this is primo shadow wall stuff here. Fingers didn't hurt until the next day. Feb 13, 2017
