Description

Anyone know the name of this pitch?

To the right of Slabs Direct and left of the Ninth Wave there is a bolt line on a blank slab. Pretty fun if you enjoy pure friction.

From the anchor below the lower crux of slabs direct move right up to the first bolt. The hardest moves are around this bolt. Run it out 80 feet or so to bolt number 2 on 5.5 or 5.6 slab it get easier as you get closer to the bolt. More moderate stuff and you get to another bolt then the anchor.

Location

Right of Slabs Direct left of Ninth Wave.

Protection

3 bolts. 2 bolt anchor.

Michael Hartrich free soloed the first ascent in '74 without the bolts. With the bolts it's still exciting. The rock quality is superb. Aug 23, 2015
