Description

On the far left side of the cliff is this deceptively easy looking slab/arete that provides one of the best pitches of the 'low angle' style at Index. Meander up ramps and cracks to the slab for 20' to the first bolt. There is a tree that can be slung along the way if desired. Once on the slab proper, clip bolts and climb classy, highly textured low angle rock past a couple of cruxes, one at the bottom and another higher up.

Location

A 60m rope is needed to descend.

Protection

9 Bolts; potentially some gear for the very beginning if desired. The anchor has a unique rappel ring that should prove more than adequate so long as the webbing it's attached to is decent. See comments below.
