DescriptionThis is the tallest route at the slabs. It's a fun route that feels somewhat adventurous and exposed at times yet straightforward. Most of the rock angle and climbing is the same as the shorter slab to the left.
Pitch 1. 100 feet, 5.9 PG-13: Traverse ledges angling left along six or seven bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Falling would be exciting and any gear through here, if any, would be small. The crux is at the last small corner a couple bolts from the top.
Pitch 2. 110 feet, 5.10+: This is unsustained, move up a crack that stays mostly smaller with a few places for hand sizes along the way. Save a small cam or two (purple TCU) for the crux, a small roof that is easily protected. Finish on a giant ledge left of the crack on the second set of anchors, if you intend to do pitch 3.
Pitch 3. 60 feet, 5.8: This is the best pitch of the climb. Climb up a hand crack flake to the crux fingers crack to a corner. Mantle onto some loose terrain to the obvious 2 bolt anchor.
Rap between small tree and the crack.
