Description Suggest change

A 5-bolt, easy route worth doing only if you've done everything else on the Red Slab and/or feel like getting away from the crowd.

Easy climbing on mossy, rough quartzite. The rock does have some interesting-looking pockets down low that you don't see elsewhere in the Rock Canyon quartzite.

Your rope may end up with a green tinge from dragging through the dry moss.

Rappel rather than lower due to the anchor.

Location Suggest change

The route lies uphill from and to the south of the Red Slab proper. To get there, go to the right side of the Red Slab and then head west a bit. A steep slot will appear on your left. Head up the slot (south) and at the top of the slot bear left towards the wall. The route starts in a sort of hollow at the base of the wall (looks like some giant used a spoon and took a chunk out).

Protection Suggest change

5 bolts to a weird anchor: two bolts and hangers, two swaged steel cables in a triangle supporting two hollow aluminum rap rings (you definitely don't want to lower from those).
