Description

If you like slab I would highly recommend this route! This route is a slab climbers paradise with a few hand friction moves. The crux is committing to moving up when you feel like you could peel off at any moment.

Start half way between Slippery Corner and Pine Tree Crack. Work up on alright feet and a few good hands. Once you are about 8-10 feet of the deck you hit the crux, the hands disappear and the feet become desperately small. Using friction with your palms trust your feet and move you feet up slowly, for a few move. You will eventually come across a good crimp that feels like a jug because you have been climbing on tiny holds. From here reach up to the jug and continue another 6 feet to the top on easy ground shared with Slippery Corner.

To do this route properly do not traverse left or right to the jugs of the neighboring routes.

Location

This route is located on the Barn Door Boulder between Slippery Corner and Pine Tree Crack.

Protection

Pads, spotters, and not falling from the top. HIGHBALL.
