Description

TOUGH!

S.L.S. Roof:

(When Eddie Murphy's character from SNL, named "Buckwheat", sings "Lookin For Love" the subtitles read "Wookin Pa Nub"...)

Nice work Joey!
Start low with an undercling under the right side of the harsh overhanging SLS roof (to the far right side away from the hole connecting to The Pitfall Boulder). Using feet on the blocky section at the base of the boulder is proper technique. Move up to a tiny left hand jib and move with your right out to a slopey hand. Turn the jib into a worse undercling and make a powerful, lengthy, full stretch grab to a distant slot.
Hang on to the slot and continue up and out the face to the "don’t blow it" top out....


Location

Walk down the LRT loop past the top lookout, past the "room" (Tiger and Beast Boulders), around 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.
