DescriptionThis slab route is located just right of Out of Darkness. See that description for additional details. If you have ever climbed in Yosemite or Squamish, calling this a "slab" is indeed sacriledge. Finishes on same hand crack as "Out of Darkness".
My ratings drift a bit as some of the crystals that were at the start of the route are no longer. The crux is between bolts 1 and 2 and is face climbing on small crystals and ledges.
There is no ground fall risk IF your belayer is paying attention and is near the base of the route. These bolts were placed on lead (with the 2nd and 3rd being placed by a very tall man 6'10" with a huge wing span) so maintain your balance during these clips.
