Description

Follows a line of bolts up a blank slab in the center of the face. Climb it in either one or two pitches (Usually two). Extra fun in the rain!

Location

Scramble up the base of the Snowbird Slab and start on a low angle ledge of sorts. Head up the blank slab. To get down, either rappel with two ropes, make two rappels with one rope, or walk off.

Protection

Bolts.
Two-bolt anchors on each pitch, the one at the top has chains.

Definitely link both pitches. Makes for long, slabtabulous climb! Jun 28, 2016

I'm not much of a slab climber, but that said, this is HANDS DOWN the hardest 5.10a I've been on. "Thin as Ice" is very descriptive. Leading it kicked my ass, and I wouldn't even know how to rate it... Aug 9, 2015

Watch out for the flexi-flake on pitch 2. Spicy! Jun 30, 2014
Leg pumping fun! All footwork - You can't crimp your way up this one. Link both pitches for full value. 12 draws needed if done this way. Aug 18, 2013
Very unique route and very fun. Super slabby and zero holds haha Nov 28, 2010
