Description

This slab route starts near the far right side of the blues cliff. The crux comes at the last two bolts on some slippery holds, but there are some hard moves lower down as well. Luckily you get a good rest before the crux. The top is wet occasionally.

Location

This route ends at two obvious chains hanging on the under side of a giant roof. It is just left of an obvious, bolted, left-facing corner climb called Color of Pain.

Protection

6 bolts to chains

Bring a brush, this slab feels hard at the grade when covered in pine needles, dust, and moss. Several different cruxes, including one at the bottom that could lead to a ledge fall if the belayer isn't alert. The climbing gets better towards the top, including a powerful/balancey finish.

I agree that the bottom needs to be kept clean. Earlier this year, I slid off the first crux layback (seemed really hard!), though was caught before hitting the ledge. It was a hard catch though, enough to injure a rib ligament and keep me out of climbing for about two months. Aug 14, 2013

Yeah... be careful because the hold you're deadpointing for above the first bolt will probably be covered in pine needles and other shit. I do agree with others that the first part feels quite stout. The top is pretty cool so still worth climbing. Sep 11, 2018

woof I thought it was the weekend, but this thing gave me the work. never felt dangerous per-say, but you're doing some dance moves. I found the crux to be super hard to read and slippery, but liz went up and hiked it no frills. Nice route, highly not life changing. Apr 2, 2019
