Description

Zit Slab is the first crack system left of the three Deception Cracks. Start in a corner with jams and face moves to a small ledge. Launch up the upper crack with great jams and huge buckets to the cliff top.

Possibly the best route of it's grade at West Elden.

Descent - Rap from anchors atop the Right Deception Crack or scramble down 4th class terrain to the right of PMC.

Does not appear to be an anchor as of summer '12 (unless I was in a big, big rush and missed it). Plan on rapping from Right Deception Crack rap hangers. Aug 4, 2012

they were there when we did it about a month ago. They are climbers right on the ledge at the top. I missed them too, built an anchor right underneath them, and found them as i was breaking down the anchor... Aug 6, 2012

That's funny Darren; must have been what I did too! I'm sure the rain and thunder didn't help. Will look next time. Aug 17, 2012
