Access Issue: RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

Description

A balancy first move or two on a sandstone slab, then easy cruising to the last bolt. Another balancy bit with smearing on varnish, then good holds to the anchors.

Location

This is on the left side of the Ice Cream Parlor area. If the anchors above the left corner 5.6 crack are anchor #1, then this route climbs to anchor #3 (from the left). (There are another couple of anchors to the left of the slab area, but let's not complicate things).

Protection

3 bolts to hanger and ring anchors.

This is run out from the third bolt to the anchor. If you blow it up top you're going to take a big ride, atleast 20 feet. The crux is in this section. May 18, 2009

I was there on October 9th. There are 4 bolts, but still a pretty crazy runout after the 3rd. Kind of an odd traverse from the 4th bolt left to the anchors, too. Oct 12, 2010

To resolve the conflict between if Parlor Game has 3 bolts or 4 bolts, Parlor Game has 3 bolts. What I see referred to in the book I have, "Best Climbs Moab", calls "Left Slab" which 5 bolts (one looked new.) Left Slab is to the right of Parlor Game, and is directly adjacent (on the left) to the crack but isn't in most books and isn't presently on MP, but I will submit it now.

Here's a picture of me on Left Slab in May 2011, enlarge to see all 5 clips:

"Left Slab... isn't presently on MP..."

Your photo is of Left Slab.

Edit: I renamed the route linked above from "Unknown 5.7" to "Left Slab", which should explain this otherwise now non-sensical comment. Sep 28, 2011

I don't know if I would give it an R rating, as I don't think you would get hurt if you fell (properly) above the 3rd bolt, but the crux move is certainly committing, run out, and a bit scary compared to other 9's on low angle slabs in the area. And yes, fun as hell. Good climb! Oct 27, 2013

Its around a 25 foot slide when your smears don't hold at the crux. Its a pretty bumpy ride, but other than a case of rope burn, nothing notable. Definitely PG-13 and runout as hell. Probably not the right route to try for my first shot at sandstone. Jun 13, 2015

Update as of March 2016: Still only 3 bolts. Really have to commit after the third bolt and trust your shoes. Have a spotter for the first bolt as well. Mar 20, 2016
