Description Suggest change

'Slippery When Wet' starts up a series intermittent flaring cracks near the south end of north fin. It is down the slope from 'Agatha Christie' and Nancy's Thumb.

Pitch 1: Climb delicate crux moves up starting cracks and through hanging blocks. From big chopper flake, continue up face just left of arete and clip one bolt. From bolt, step up around corner to the right. Traverse right on scant protection, up to reach another large ledge with two bolt belay.

Pitch 2: Exit belay ledge up and right to prominent corner. Climb the obvious corner to easier finish. Top out near large pine. Bring either gear or long slings to construct a belay on top.

To walk off, scramble north through brush toward Nancy's Thumb. Take care not to fall to your death on the talus to the west.

Protection Suggest change

60m rope, Standard rack. Bring single and double length runners for extensions and possible tree-belay.
