Description

Best slab to be found at Red Wing. Super good rock quality with awesome balancy moves. Crux is right in the middle, followed by crimpers and pockets leading to the anchors.

Location

Starts to the left of Don't Mean Nothin' on top of a large pedestal. You can and should belay from the pedestal, but be sure to stick clip the first bolt (which doesn't require a stick clip).

Nice technical slab route. Standing and racking up on top of the crumbly pedestal can be iffy. We used two cams and set up anchors for the belayer in the wide crack left of the route. Alternatively, the belayer could clip with a long sling into the first bolt. Apr 30, 2007

I found it easiest to have the belayer on the ground below the crumbling pedestal. Oct 24, 2009

It's definitely my favorite route at redwing. Super fun moves on very thin holds. Stay along the clip-line for the send at full value. I though the belay spot was good, i think some of the loose rocks was cleared out. May 12, 2017

At some point in the last few months that hand/foot that looked like a quarter popped off. I think without it it's a bit harder and even more sequency than before. Aug 31, 2018
