DescriptionThis fine route, on good rock, is a truly excellent climb for the budding leader, but you've gotta have your head together for the slabby runout to the first bolt. Then follow the low-angle splitter cracks to the top. The route is a lot longer than it looks from the base, too, adding to the climb's appeal. Too bad it's guarded by the heinous approach.
See the photo topo in the excellent online guide.
LocationStarts on the right-center side of the south face of the slab. Head straight up to the bolt, then trend left up a short crack, and switch to another crack a little farther left, which will take you to the top.
Walk off the back of the slab. Head west to get down, or head east to climb Upper Dome.
