Ferga-Slab

Follow the line of bolts up a beautiful patina face. At the huge diagonal crack it's back to classic Fergy, with a very thin flaring crack to the right and small nothings to the left, and plenty of room for air if you flail. One word: CLASSIC!

Protection

6 bolts plus anchors

Hmm... I must be doing it all wrong. ..Pretty good route. Great rock, fun climbing, but I think it doesn't quite deserve the hype because its relatively easy until the very end. So it's just not as consistent at the grade as say its action packed neighbors Fuego and Pump or Jump. ..But don't get me wrong.. fun climb, and a great warm-up for the other 2 classics. Jun 15, 2015

It's like a slice of City of Rocks pie. So good! Boissal said it right, needs 14 stars. If you gave it 2 stars, you're doing it wrong. May 13, 2013

Superb. Brilliant. Other synonyms for awesome. Well protected climbing with face, lieback crack, insecure vertical pocket jams, sharp crimpy patina, and a few jugs. Crux comes right at the top, so save some juice. Not sure about 5 stars Boissal, but certainly a solid 4. May 22, 2012

We should probably petition mp.com for the addition of a 5th star specifically for this route. Seems like it would get at least 8 or 9 in some other areas of the Wasatch.
Great patina edges down low and an intriguing lieback crack with the occasional face hold up high when the wall gets steeper.
The route doesn't relent until you've clipped the chains.
Long and well protected for Fergy with an approach as classic as the climbing itself :) Jul 1, 2009
