Description

This route takes a line up the left edge of the Grace Slick slab (left of Grace Slick). Begin as for NE Face route, but at the big roof formed by bottom of the GS slab (optional belay) look for a bolt. Step right and then straight up over roof. Follow bolts (plus some gear) to two bolt belay. Last pitch continues up slab (gear and bolts) to a ledge then up a block to rap station. Rap the route (60M single or two ropes). Exciting line on good rock.

There are two spots to easily get up on to the slab. The one higher up is much closer to the first bolt of the the first pitch. I really liked this climb. Ends up being just a little shy of 200 ft of pure slab. Can't wait to come back and lead it. Definitely need to have my head screwed on for this, especially the first pitch after the third (last) bolt. Anorexic slab padding. The route does seem to be a bit unloved as it is a bit gritty. A shame because it is a great route with relatively easy access and easy to rap off of with 2 60M ropes. We rapped towards then off of Coupe de Grace no problem (has rap rings). Jul 10, 2016
