Description

Holds just left of Slime lead to the same vertical hold used on Slime's lieback. After grabbing the ledge and doing the mantel it's easy 5th class to the top.

Good positive holds on slightly overhanging rock. It can be somewhat glassy.

Video here.

Location

Chalked and polished holdes left of Slime.

Protection

crashpad / spotters

A giant polished hold thats used coming out of the giant bottom pocket is about to come down. I'm pretty sure it'll change the way this is climbed. Oct 1, 2016

I have it on good authority that it's called Pliers because it closes with Slime (on the right). Aug 7, 2011

Slime is on the right - Pliers is on the left (facing rock). IMHO a tad harder than Slime maybe 5.10d. Jan 14, 2008
