Description

This slab route is on left side of Upper Infirmary Slab (before you get to Western or Left Infirmary) and shares the first three bolts with Community Service (formerly Little Flatiron Left aka West Buttress). At the horizontal break just above the third bolt, traverse slightly right and clip a fourth bolt. The crux (5.6+/5.7-) is gaining the thin crack above the 4th bolt. Continue up the crack, as it opens up to thin-hands, placing gear to the fifth and final bolt. The top shares the same anchor as Community Service (formerly Little Flatiron Left aka West Buttress).

Protection

5 bolts plus small stoppers or small Aliens down low in the crack to finger to thin hand-sized pro (to a #0.75 Camalot) up higher.

There is a bolted rappel anchor at the top.

Location

Per Dave Holliday: This route is on the left side of of Upper Infirmary Slab (but not clear over at Left Infirmary Slab, called "Western Infirmary" in the latest guidebook). Rappel about 60-90 feet from a bolted rappel anchor.
