Description [Suggest Change]

A thin, technical, fun slab up the backside of the boulder. Stand start just left of the tree with a big pinch on the arete for your right hand and a nothing crimp for your left. Pull onto a decent right foot and stem left to a small hold. Press/mantel your foot up onto the pinch and follow tiny crimps up to a thank-god jug at the lip.

Don't get scared and move left into Stairstep Method.

Location [Suggest Change]

This slab is on the back of the Method boulder, just right of Stairstep Method, left of the tree. It happens to be the blankest face on the boulder.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Pad, maybe a spotter

seems like a cool variation to what would be the true "method slab". On the same face go directly straight up using thin feet, excellent balance, and the occasional thin crimp. This face looks a little dirty but yields a excellent slab route that does not quit until you latch the "all too far away jug" at the top. Dec 13, 2011

I cleaned the holds on this yesterday while some friends were working harder routes on the boulder. I agree that a left start feels more true to the style - I started with my right hand on the 'nothing crimp', stood on a low left foot, grabbed a sloper with my left hand, then worked up on good slab feet and tiny crimps.

It felt a little easier than the Boulder X Slab, the holds are better. Oct 12, 2015
