Description

This challenging slab problem takes a line up the center of the smooth-looking face on smallish holds.

A thin start gives way to easier slab moves once past the technical first five feet. Best done when the temps are cooler to ensure success, and maybe give it a good brushing as it's often quite chalked and greasy due to it's location.

Location

Center of the east face (facing the road).
