Description

Just left of the Standard Route is a beautiful,clean almost vertical slab. Follow the line of bolts up the smooth slab to a small roof. Make a tricky move past the roof and reach the belay. The crux is getting to the fouth bolt. Great route with good steep and dicey slab climbing. Almost three stars.

Protection

Nine bolts will get you to a two-bolt anchor.

Per Lisa Montgomery: two bolts were added to make this a more reasonable lead.

We now have bolts...again? This thing has been messed with. 3.5 star slab route! It's a little spicy (sorry?) and better with the draws hung. Feb 26, 2015

This is a phenomenal slab pitch! Don't over complicate the upper roof or face the heartbreaker that I did. Dec 31, 2016

Excellent movement on this route with improbable sequences. Felt 12b ish for the OS. Mostly good rock quality that should improve with traffic. Bolts don't follow the natural line, and clipping some is quite cruxy. For how many bolts there are, there were some pretty hard moves with uncertain fall potential. This route could be 3.5 stars with a the last 3-4 bolts before the bulge moved a few feet left.
Finally, please brush off your tickmarks before you leave the crag! Jan 6, 2018
