Description

On Supremacy Rock, facing the road, a small formation called The Pyramid exists. If approached from the picnic area, The Pyramid is the section of rock closest to you. and Simple Simon Slab will be the first crack on the slab which faces the road.

This route is frequently occupied by top-roping groups of scouts, church-groups, or climbing classes.

The route is nice, but too short to be of any real interest to most climbers.

Protection

There is not really much pro, nor should much be required. The low angle slab is an easy solo or TR, and a fall would more likely result in minor injury than any real harm.

There is now a 2-bolt anchor up top for hanging TRs.

Several times I have set up a TR on this route for beginners, it is OK for this although it is a slippery slab, rather un-Eldo like, although beginners do not care. There are cracks on the top for anchoring, but they are not bombproof enough to take falls from many directions. The tree visible in the above photo is the best anchor, but you need a 50' sling or spare rope to rig it. Jul 12, 2004
