Description Suggest change

This short, deceptive slab is located immediately to the right of Get up that Tree.

One of our party jumped on this climb (which is not listed in Heel & Toe) thinking it was going to be an easy 5.8 or 5.9 romp up the slab. Not to be.

The climbing is easy up to the 2nd bolt, where a sequence of very difficult slab and edging moves marks the crux. The hardest move uses a sharp pinch flake that is not long for this world. This climb could warrant an 'S' rating for the 5.9/10 mantle that comes at the end of the crux sequence getting to the 3rd bolt... blowing it here could result in a hard fall onto the lower angled part of the slab below.

We thought this climb was at least 11a, and probably more like 11b.

Protection Suggest change

3 bolts to a two bolt anchor.
