Description

Get ready for some finger-lockin' fun!! The Slot climbs the thin crack with the distinctive pod about 2/3 up and joins the last 10 feet of They Died Laughing.

Although it is a little stout in the grade, it is, nonetheless, a good test of finger fortitude!

Location

The thin crack to the left of They Died Laughing.

Protection

A #2 Camalot at the beginning, then mostly small Stoppers, Camalots/Aliens, and a couple .75 Camalots for the traverse crack into They Died.

If you want to climb and then clean on rappel it is possible to make it to the anchors at the top of the corner/roof. I think it took a 70m though, and definitely only for rap, wouldn't want to lower over that. Sep 17, 2017

Skinny fingers really help! Can't imagine doing this with sausage paws. One of the best thin cracks on Cathedral. Sep 10, 2015

Crux rolls around just below the ledge underneath the big pod. Paste your feet, lock down your fingers, and pull! Thin, but a good constriction always seemed within a reasonable distance. Great route! Jun 28, 2014

First climbed this (and sent clean) 20 years ago when I was 13! No way my fingers would fit in this now! Jan 24, 2014

A thrilling onsight for me last fall. Plugging in a couple of really thin pieces and punching it through the crux was awesome. I thought it was accurately rated. Mar 6, 2007

This is a fun route if you like thin fingers cracks....there is a direct finish possible using crimpers and slopers going directly up from about halfway through the traverse crack...more often top roped, but it's a fun lead though a little heady maybe...it makes the line a little more independent....
