Description

This was one of the first routes in Rock Canyon. Red Slab travels up beautiful rock with easy but airy moves, making it one of the most popular routes in the canyon.As you climb up to the Red Slab crag from the main Rock Canyon trail the Red Slab route is the second line of bolts that you come to once you have reached the main slab of red rock.As should be the case with all top rope anchors PLEASE do not top rope off from the chains. Do the right thing and put a couple of draws on the links when setting up your top rope. A couple of long draws go a long way in helping reduce rope drag. Constant wear from belaying directly off of chains creates an unsafe and expensive situation. Show respect for the person who donated the money to put the chains in, and always top rope from draws instead.

Protection

The top rope/rap anchor goes off the last set of two bolt anchors found on the far left (north) of the slab proper. The route is well bolted, with seven bolts plus double chain anchors.
