Description

This is a fine route on the clean plaque of rock that the approach trail hits when it reaches the cliff (far left side of Contest Wall). It starts just to the left of a rotten chimney and cave. Slipper Queen has a 15 foot high first bolt guarded by very easy climbing. The hard climbing begins at the 3rd bolt, and is fairly sustained to the anchors. The crux is fairly tricky since it requires a long move to a crimp that is very difficult to see from below.

Good route, but probably not deserving of the "4 star" rating it gets in the new Knapp guidebook.

6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor

Beautiful route! First clip is high, but don't be scared - it's pretty easy ground to it. The key to sending is to go left; and when you can't go left anymore, go left some more. Jun 22, 2006
