This is a fun 5.7 with a variety of moves. It is well protected with a lot of rests and is a good route for new sport climb leaders.


SLIM is one of the first climbs on the Piggy Bank Wall. It is just left of Crab Nation and just right of a detatched pillar.


8 bolts to the anchor.

If you know who got the FA, please let me know so I can update it. Thanks. Dec 3, 2010

Probably an MJM route. Dec 5, 2010

Note to admin: this route should be renamed "The Apple Cracks" as it already existed as a gear route (Shelf Road Rock 2nd ed., Mark Van Horn, page 123).

Bolts and hangers: $50
Bosch: $500
Retrobolting an existing gear line and renaming it to stick-it-to-some-guy-who-called-you-out.... PRICELESS. Feb 22, 2011

Retrobolting a 5.7 obscure chosspile crack, not surprised. The original name given by the FA is The Apple Cracks and that should be the only name. Other *quality* cracks at Shelf have been retro'd like I Claudius and Crack of Dawn. Did they change the names of those? Don't even start with this AKA crap.

Slim, I'm guessing I'll have my own chunkfest route at the West Bank named in my honor soon enough. (Piggy Bank is ghey...I'm not calling it that. It's been known as the "West end of the Bank" or "West Bank" for 20 years. WTF???) Feb 23, 2011

This route is actually pretty enjoyable, especially if you climb straight up the face. Mar 10, 2011
