Description Suggest change

30 feet to the right of the mine tunnel is a near vertical slab. The slab is fully bolted with a small belay ledge at its base. There's a short scramble to the ledge. With bolts every seven or so feet, the route is fully protected. Fun slab climbing with holds just where you want them. I found the crux to be between the 5th an 6th bolts (I think), requiring a mantle off a small ledge to a blind reach overhead, landing me, thankfully, in a 3-finger sinker pocket. The Rolofson book says the route is a 5.10, but he may not fully recall the route. I thought is was more on the 5.9 side. Either way, it's worth a visit while climbing at Animal World or the Boulderado.

Protection Suggest change

7 bolts and a 2 bolt anchor with Mussy hooks. You can use an optional #1 Camalot to start.
