Description

This fun route is trickier than it appears. Hand and foot holds become thin between the first and third bolts. Take your time to execute proper move sequences and body positions. Trust the teeny nubbins for your feet and hands. This is NOT a beginner lead climb, and there is potential for a ground fall between the first and second bolts (right where things begin to get spicy).

Location

This route is the right-hand of the two short routes located on the right-hand side of Slabosaurus, and may be accessed by climbing up a crack below a large dead pine tree to gain a ledge that overlooks the two longer climbs on the left-hand side of Slabosaurus, or by going around the back side of ledge and scrambling up.

Protection

4 bolts and 2 twist anchors.

I thought clipping the second bolt was pretty mellow but I am 6' tall and could reach it off of bomber feet. Personally I thought the crux was moving between bolt 2 and 3 where you really have to trust some slabby feet. Jul 10, 2009
