Access Issue: Seasonal Closure - 2018 Update Details


Start as for Sponge Bath. Climb the slab, clip the first bolt and then climb straight up to a short corner past a bolt to the anchor.


Small gear and a couple of quickdraws will get you to the anchor.

A fun slab route. I protected the last move to the anchor with a #1 Ball Nut; another bolt here might be a good idea. Sep 4, 2006

The slab down low is slippery when wet and is not protected. Be careful. Aug 23, 2007

Fun slab route. There are two new bolts (in addition to the ones in the picture), one 10ft up from the first bolt (in the picture), and a second new bolt between the last bolt and the anchors. I only used two small cams - 2inch and a 1/4inch to protect the rest. Fixed protection are in really good condition. Sep 29, 2008

We placed a nut between the second and third bolts. Apr 28, 2013

Arguably the best route on the crag. To start, stay right & climb the smoothest part of the slab for some fun friction climbing. There are 4 protection bolt. A green and/or yellow Alien (0.5"-0.75" cam) is needed before 3rd bolt. Mar 25, 2018

The slab at the beginning is mellow if you like slab, terrifying if you're new to slab. There is no place for pro before the first bolt, so plan accordingly. I placed one nut and one small hex. The rest is well-bolted. It would also take small cams well. Aug 19, 2018

I would agree with Mark Rolofson that this is the best route on the crag, but I haven't done the hardest routes there. Oct 21, 2018
