Description

This problem involves very intricate technical slab work, get the sequence right or flounder. I suggest if you want to climb this try when it's cold and your fresh and feeling strong perhaps. I have done it a handful of times one day 3 times in a row. I have been shut down far more often however, I was shut down the last 3 times I have gone to the slab. What is this thing really rated?

Location

This is on the north-facing side that is a super smooth slab with virtually only 1 decent hold minus the 3-4 micro features.

Protection

1-2 pads.

You can also do a crimp mantle on the thumbs and reach straight up to a small horn. Long move, five stars. Jun 12, 2009

Yeah, the route you are showing was done by Jim Hausmann around 1999. It was called Slim Jim, and we felt it went at about V3-V4. We did three other problems on that boulder the same day. There is an overhanging section that faces the trail that I did. Starting from S.D.S. you slap your way up and right until you are on the top. It was a nice slap fest at about V5, and I call that MR. Slim. Nice little boulder. We did loads more in that same area that are quite good. Jan 3, 2009
