[Hide Comment] Thanks Steve, I thought Eric's guide said Sloper, but not positive. And yes this climb is amazing. Everyone should try this problem. May 19, 2009
[Hide Comment] I was just able to check on the name and it's in EZ's guide as "Slope of Dadaism".

Just wanted to reaffirm that this is one of my favorites at the lake and that everyone and their mother should get on it. Classic. Jul 27, 2009

[Hide Comment] Amazing route. Sketchy topout. Oct 1, 2009
[Hide Comment] I think most people don't pay too much attention to the left arete rules/eliminatery anymore. Do what's fun, right? Apr 22, 2010
[Hide Comment] Paul actually has a point. From the start holds it is not too hard to perch just left of the corner to some jugs before surfing out right past the crux. Still a cool boulder, and frankly feels kind of hard doing it the normal way! May 11, 2013

[Hide Comment] Ok, you guys need to try the Monolith Traverse. I think I got it around '99 or so. Start around the corner on the far left of the Monolith block, traverse right on a low crack, past Slope, all the way to the right edge of the block. Then take a higher crack back left and this put you on the finish of Slope. I thought V5 for sure, a classic! Nov 20, 2013
