Description

In between routes 9 and 10, directly up the dark slab, Original Sin climbs up very small edges and fingertip-to-fingernail nubbins to the anchors for the first pitch of Moby Grape (listed as route "Unknown" in this database). There are around 9 good bolts protecting the route, but they're difficult to see until you're on top of them (accounting for this route not getting much traffic).

You get bonus points for ascending the last vertical step directly to the anchors instead of moving left to the crack pull-up/finish of Moby Grape. The grade stays the same either way - but not too difficult for a 9+, all told.

Please note the comments on Unknown/Moby Grape about rope length unless you intend to continue that climb's second pitch. This is not a slab you want to be downclimbing unroped.
