Located on the far left side of the Negropolis formation. Start at a chimney, moving on to the face at a thin flake, then 3 bolts on a slab to the top.


Best descent is probably to downclimb to the top of the Tap Dancing pillar, and rap from the bolts (with chains).


Thin to 3 inches.

Cool route, pulling on the flake low gives a moments pause but as you ascend it's super cool & thin... thin like those flakes you see on much harder routes. The flake can protect with a small stopper or 3/4" cam (a bit higher) before getting to the 1st bolt. Bolt line is and super aesthetic to watch people climb. Partner as recommended scrambled down the chalk-stones to the neighboring anchor to descend. Oct 27, 2013

I think I did the first ascent of this in 1988 with John Mireles. My first and last FA. Dec 30, 2017

Hey Tony, did you name it Slap Prancing? I always thought that was a typo in the Vogel guidebook and should have been Slab Prancing?? Dec 30, 2017

I don't remember naming it. We didn't report these ascents to anyone, I think John did the FA of Rap Dancing that same day. Jan 1, 2018
