Description

There are a number of lines ranging in difficulty from 5.easy to maybe 5.4. A commonly used line starts at the lower left side of the little flatiron-like slab and angles up and right to the belay. There is really no fixed route since it is possible to climb just about anywhere on the face. This is excellent for rank beginners and teaching slab moves and developing footwork.

Location

This climb is on a separate formation from the main body of Practice Rock and is immediately adjacent (left) to the West Face of the main rock. It's possible to set up a toprope using a small tree but equally easy to build a gear anchor for the ledge accessing Toperopes. The anchor may be reached from the easy slab on the East side of the rock.

Protection

Build anchor using small cams and nuts, or use the tree atop the rock for a belay anchor.

Outstanding place to bring the kids. My daughter's first climb on rope with Dad! Jul 13, 2013
A very nice little slab for getting used to the fabulous friction of the City granite. Also great for stretching out the kinks after a long drive in to the Reserve. I thought it was pretty much a 5.3-5.4 slab with an angle reminiscent of Boulder's First Flatiron East Face. Sep 3, 2011
