DescriptionThis is the best slab climb I've ever done and I only got to do the first pitch due to darkness and rain. The climbing is exposed, very thoughtful, delicate and footwork intensive. In late summer the slab is covered with a colorful canvas of lichen (but not slippery) which really makes you search for "holds".
When my partner and I approached the base I called it a "pussy route" and offered to lead in my approach shoes. I must've been delirious because I was hungover, fatigued, dehydrated and had the worst case of ball chafing ever. Good thing he convinced me otherwise. I had never felt my facial muscles spasm while clipping a bolt..something just short of a religious experience..
