Description

Start on the right most side of the scoop/slab. Grab some slopers and try to mount up onto the slab while trending slightly to your right. A classic in thin steep friction climbing!!!! An area must do!!

Location

Take the Sisters trail over to the Land of The Slabs. Just before (about 30 yards) the "Over Easy block/Mineral wall" to your left or WEST you will see this lone block with a steep slab facing towards the trail. Go get some!!

Protection

Pads.

Tricky slab that kills me!! I have to give it V7 just for the thin slab of pain factor!! I have done this twice this year and it always gives me some much trouble. If you lose the left foot chip while trying to pull into the thin scoop you are just gone!!! Cheese grader chest man!!! Still, this is a great problem that needs much more attention!!! Jul 10, 2009
