Description

An ancient classic, Wall End Slab takes a bizarre, winding line up it's eponymous zigzag-shaped buttress. Starting near the left end of the blank slab, make reachy moves past pockets (crux) to gain a break. Similar movements lead to a triangular ledge at half height. This is where the route gets interesting. Shuffle with ease across the horizontal to gain the right arete of the buttress. A helpful-looking pocket actually yields little in the way of pro (marginal tricam or cam placement), so continue on around the arete and up the balancy face to its right, your pro now miles away down and to the left. Fortunately, the ground rises up to this final section making a fall less serious.

Location

Left of Goliath's Groove on a tall, angular slab.

Protection

Good cams in lower horizontals. No reliable pro above 1/3 height, though some cleverness may yield something. The majority of the climb is easy enough that this lack of runners isn't too disconcerting.
