Description

S.L.S. Boulder:

Classic!

Shane Messer Climbed the First Ascent of this line in 2009, followed by Aaron James Parlier in August 2011, and Matt Bosley claimed the 3rd ascent on Sept 13th 2012.

"S.L.S" starts far, low, in the back of the large, overhead, ominous roof.

Match hanging on the low rear ledge on the middle two "knobs" with a heel hook out right. Reach out to the first and then second pinches (same as "Nancy"). From the second slopey pinch, climb straight out of the roof to gain deep, thin mailbox slot using the small foot out right and a heroic amount of core.

From the slot, work up the short face to finish through jugs over the front face of the boulder.

Location

Walk down the LRT loop past the top lookout, past the room where nexus is, past the sharp curve, and past the Mouth-of-Wilson boulder... once you pass the MOW the trail turns to the right, in front of the Mike-n-Ike boulder. Pass Mike-N-Ike, and to your far left will be another boulder called the Pit-Fall Boulder. Continue down the trail a few yards and you will see a huge impressive roof with a handsome series of horizontal pinches... this is the SLS Boulder. In the back of the boulder should be a low opening that leads through to below the Pit-Fall Boulder.
