Description

A good slab climb with great movement and a committing finish. Toe Shoes follows a line of five well-placed bolts to its crux, where the real business begins.

Climb a broken seam for about 15 feet to the first bolt. Pull a small roof and lean left towards another bolt. Work the slab up and right heading for a rest at a wide undercling. Continue straight up here to the last bolt and punch the crux. Head towards an arcing seam and run it out a good distance to the ledge. Climb with confidence, blowing the moves above the crux will result in a long ride! Belay up and left at an anchor.

Location

Toe Shoes is on the upper, far most set of slabs at the base of the Great White Icicle Area. From the waterfall head right towards Daddy Long Legs. Follow the trail up and right along the base for about 40 feet until the trail runs out. Head straight up another 25 feet to the base of the slabs.

Protection

Draws for five bolts and a chain anchor.

-Optional small cams, small stoppers, and a #2 bd may ease the start, but are not needed.
