Description

There are a ton of variations to this "route" because this is the name of the whole slab and it is not broken up in to different lines... All variations are R rated on the lead but there are convenient TR anchors at the top...

My favorite way up the slabs is to start near the middle and climb easy chicken heads trending right tward a left leaning crack above... The chicken heads get smaller as you go... Gain the base of the crack and layback and jam your way to the top...

If you like real friction climbing start in the middle and head straight up to the top... There are fewer holds this way and you can test your rubber...

No matter what variation you are on if you spend some time here you will end up rescuing some unprepared novice or local punk who was suckerd in by the super easy climbing down low...

Location

The slab on the left end of Rimmon...

Protection

Not much pro at all though if you know the climb you could get a few pieces in... Regular rack...
Bolts on top...

Reached for a hold on this the other day and my hand came back out with a chunk of glass hanging out of my finger. May 8, 2014

In all seriousness, my parents live in Bedford so I'll swing through every now and then, I've topped out to guys smoking something out of a glass pipe (no, not a heady one). But, I think I freaked them out as much as they surprised me. May 4, 2010

This is a really fun route great for beginners but be careful you never know what you will find at the top or what will be thrown at you... May 4, 2010
