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.

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.

This route can also be done trad. It protects well and is easy enough to make it a great route for beginners. I did this over the weekend and used #1-4 DMM Peenuts, #0-1.25 DMM 4CU, and #1-2 BD C3. May 14, 2012

Found two or three loose bolts on this. I think they are number 2, 4 and 5 from the bottom. Maybe 2,3 and 5. May 6, 2012

this is a often used route and can get kind of greasy. but if you are into free soloing this is a great wall to train on if you can stay within yourself. But be safe and happy trails. Aug 26, 2011

Fun route with great views. I think the only "tricky" part is after the 3rd bolt, but it's pretty easy and fun. Aug 4, 2011

Great place for a first climb. I've taken several friends here for their first outdoor climb and it's a real confidence booster. May 21, 2009

This is the second bolt line you encounter. Red Red Whine is the first bolted route you encounter. May 13, 2006
