Climb 80 feet of slab to a small, arching overlap. Step over the arch and continue up 20 more feet of slab.

Walk off to the left via a fourth class gully.


This is between Water Witch on the left and Cedar Slab on the right.


4 bolts and a fixed pin to a 2 bolt anchor.

Our introduction to South Platte slab grades. 5.6 here which seems very stiff compared to other areas, 5.7 in the Colorado guide, but would probably rate UK 5b on the Etive Slabs (i.e. 5.9+), albeit without bolts! Oct 16, 2011

No pin that I could see. Optional pro might be a 0.4 and a #2 Camalot to shorten the higher runouts? Feb 14, 2015

I also did not see a pin. There are a few cracks for protection though and you can back up the single anchor bolt by placing a #4 Camalot with a long sling a bit higher. Sep 7, 2015

This route now has a 2 bolt anchor, thanks to the generous person that upgraded these anchors. Apr 10, 2016

I think this route deserves a little more credit than most have given. A bit runout (without extra pro) but a lot of variety packed into a little climb. Face to finger crack to layback to hand crack. I found it quite enjoyable. Two bolts make for a nice rap with a 60m rope. Apr 3, 2017
