Description

This is a low angled slab which has a variety of low end difficulty, top rope lines from a single set of Metolius rap hangers. There are a variety of small ramps that crisscross this face. The crux is in the last 10 feet of the climb. With good balance, you could ascend the entire face with feet only climbing.

There are still some friable edges and chunks of loose rock along the way, so beware if you are hanging out below.

Location

It lies just below Dreamtime on a slab to the left of the Solar Wall.

Protection

There are 2 Metolius rap hangers from which to anchor for a top rope. The angle of the top of the slab is low, but don't mess up setting up the anchor, since it's 95 feet to the ground.
