Slip and Slide begins just left of the little ramp on the right side of The Red Slab. Bee line up to the anchors on a lot of 5.10 climbing. I was never quite sure if this route had any distinct crux. It seems a bit harder to start, but the moves are fairly uniform overall. There is a little left traverse at bolt 5 that seems a bit reachy. Other than that, just stay on your feet and enjoy some Ol-Fashioned-Slabbin on Alan's beefy bolts. Good stone, good clipping stances, lots of fun moves. Slip and Slide does not seem as spooky as some of the routes on the left side of the crag, It also shares an anchor with Pink Slip and this anchor is well positioned to top rope both routes. Two stars for continuity, bullet proof stone, and the good climbing.


QD only. This 85 foot route needs 7 - 8 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
