DescriptionSustained, intricate slabbing on rock that is generally relatively clean and solid. Feels progressively more runout and the crux is in the upper half. From the last bolt, the last bolt and anchors of Pyramid Scheme are the only gear one sees; while it is possible to diagonal left to PS's anchors, CC continues straight up to hidden anchors, just above the left of PS's.
Since this unfrequented slab is subject to frequent afternoon cleansings, it will rarely have significant chalk on it, making it feel harder and more adventurous.
LocationOn "Pyramid Buttress", a 100' high compact shield or rock at the bottom right (south) side of Lower Great Face, there are at present three lines of bolts. The leftmost is Trance Dance (5.11), The middle Pyramid Scheme (5.10) and the rightmost Closed Casket (5.10).
