Slap and Tickle

5.10a, Sport, 50 ft,  Avg: 2 from 9 votes
FA: Euan Cameron and Julie Wright, 14th August 2008
California > Sierra Eastside > Mammoth Lakes Area > McLeod Lake

Description

Start 5 feet left of the left facing corner taken by Up The Junction. Climb the fun flakes and dikes to a tricky sequence to gain the large shelf.

Continue up the slab to the last bolt. Passing the last bolt is the crux, but with some good slab technique the anchors are soon reached.

Slap and Tickle, Up The Junction and Cool For Cats all share the same anchors.

Location

Middle of the right section of the cliff - this is the left climb in the 'Squeeze Section'

Protection

4 bolts, 2 ring anchors
