DescriptionFrom belay at bottom of second slab, climb down left for 10 feet under first bolt and follow line of 7 bolts straight up center of slab. Crux about 1/3 of the way up. Excellent edging.
From the original post (this was originally entered as a TR and named Second Slab aka Bee Highway): 0.6 miles west of the Beige Siphon Tube there is a paved pullout on the south side of the road next to a big block of rock called the Borg. Look up to the east. 3 obvious slabs exist. Second slab is just up and left of the lower right slab. Start in the middle of the face and go up to a seam/crack. Follow the seam left then right (5.9) to the top or continues up the right side of the face (5.7) to the top.
