Description

This route is located on the left-hand-most side of the Slabosaurus area. Climb up a large flake/crack system to the first bolt about 20' off the ground. Before the first bolt is gained, inside the crack there will be found an old piton with a ring. Opportunities for the use of trad protection on this route are sparse thereafter, and some bolts may appear a bit run-out. There are two cruxes: between the first and second bolts, and between the second and third bolts. BEWARE LOOSE ROCK on this route, which appears to have seen little traffic to date. About midway up the route there is a very large horizontally-oriented flake that sounds hollow and may be ready to come off; avoid stepping on or grabbing this flake -- other holds are available to the right of, as well as above, the flake.

Most of the climbing on this is pretty good but the death flake about halfway up would deter me from doing it again. Also, there is a seriously expanding flake just past the first bolt. Finally, there is a pretty good runout on easy rock between the last bolt and the anchors. If you want to keep it super safe, you may want to bring some cams. Jul 10, 2009
