Access Issue: COVID-19 New Mexico Requirements - Updated Nov. 16, 2020 Details

Description

Stand up onto the slab and make a series of exceedingly thin moves on shallow, sloping monos and edges to gain the slashing crack of the previous problem. Then easier to the top.

Sadly a tree was cut down to do this problem.

Location

Climbs the center of the obvious slab as you approach the boulder.

Protection

Pads and spotter.

[Hide Comment] This climb is laughingly sandbagged. As someone who has climbed a lot of hard slabs, this thing is more like v8. Especially if you have fat fingers like me!

An aesthetic line for sure, but the actual climbing is pretty painful and not overly enjoyable. Nov 18, 2016
