Description

-In visual geometry, the horizon is a provocative concept. Standing on a floor plane where parallel lines converge toward a point on the horizon, one sees that the point of convergence on the horizon is a "vanishing point", which geometers call a point at infinity... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horizon

-This is the slab face on the left side of the boulder, to the left of the main face which has "Horizon Lone".

Stand start at the low, bottom, right corner (just left of where Horizon ArĂȘte, and Event Horizon Sit starts).
Follow a few thin, but confident, crimps up the slab face which lead into massive ledges to the walk up top. Fun, beautiful, and a perfect warm-up or cool down. Hard to pad, but pads are hardly needed.

Protection

Hard to pad, but the dangerous parts would be in the last half, which is where you climb on massive ledges on a slab. Pad the start just to be sure?
