Description

Slipstream takes a line of strength up gold polish on the far left side of the wall. There is only one bolted route to the left of it, Dark Side (5.7).

It is best climbed in one long pitch, but you can stop and hang out at an anchor half way up if you want. This intermediate anchor also allows you to rap with one rope, or set up a toprope on the first 90'.

I found the climb to be pretty sustained and one of the harder ones we did at the Cookie Sheet. If you've never heard sticky rubber "squeak", you will on this mirror like polish. After the final bolt, I traversed right to a featured corner which leads to the anchor. Bolts tend to be about 20ft apart on this one.
