friction skills are all u need for this runout rock shoe friendly route.

PITCH 1: from block move up and right passing some flakes and 2bolts to bolted station. 5.8 70ft.

PITCH 2: climb past the "navel" to a bolt, then straight up for another clip. dont worry fresh bolts protect. run it out to anchors. 5.9 100ft.

PITCH 3: one bolt is all you get @40ft. then angle up and left to anchors. 5.9 100ft.

PITCH 4: work left into alcove with gear and follow the corner to the top. 5.7 100ft. use tree to bring up second.

Location

from kiosk walk up and right to base of block route (look for grassy seam w/rap anchors 40ft up). go left up steep drainage 20ft uphill of white way direct.

START: on large block below vertical dike uphill from black streak.

Protection

5 draws, runners and two peace's 3 to 4in. how light is that? double bolted stations all the way up.

Very fitting name, little crystal features save the day on some of the moves! Sometimes it almost feels more like face climbing then slab. Found the first pitch a bit confusing, still don't know if we went up the right line or not, trended right over textured terrain and placed one piece before shooting straight up to the anchors on P1.

Fantastic Stone moderate, a must do for any aspiring slabber! Oct 6, 2011

This route goes up left of Great white way. Start on left side of apron, up to bolted anchor below the navel. I think working around this navel and left is the tricky part. The runouts are big, but it is stone mountain. I climbed it in 2000 so my memory is not that good. May 3, 2012

Great route with impeccable friction. P2 has only one bolt, as does P3 & 4. Link P2 and P3 for a great stretch of climbing. Mar 20, 2017
