Subordinate Claws is a good slab to toprope from the anchors on The Green Adjective. Reach these anchors by first climbing Perhaps or The Green A. It is best to set a directional on the left in a big crack system, a #2 camalot works well.

Start just left of the Green A and work up the face on smears and edges past some old chopped bolts. Near the top, this climb steps left into an easy crack system. This route would be 5.9X if lead, and it is a bit ricey.


Toprope problem only. This used to be bolted, but all the bolts are chopped.

When toproping this or Grren Adjective, do it through your own locking biners through the chains. This is a really popular place and those chains are a bit worn - its no more work really and it keeps the maintenance cost and effort down. Mar 31, 2004
You should always go through your own biners anyways. Never toprope directly through the chains ever. You should know that. Sep 13, 2004

That is true. But many people don't realize it is bad to TR through the chains or are lazy, so a reminder never hurts. Sep 14, 2004

Not a bad little slab. A little tough getting off the ground, but worth the time. Sep 29, 2005

Easier and less sustained than the Green A. Sep 8, 2012
