DescriptionThe Super Slab is more of an area than a route. It is the large, smooth slab that you first encounter when hiking up the A.T. The Slab is about 80 feet wide and contains many toproping opportunities and a couple of leadable routes. It runs from Class 4 Scramble on the right to Slab to Corner on the left.
Popular toproping lines (not listed as separate routes):
- On the far right side of the slab. Start to the right of two medium-sized trees growing on a small ledge about 20 feet up. A horizontal crack runs about 15 feet off the deck. (5.5)
- About 20 ft. right of T.B.D. See this pic for the start. (5.7)
The Fasulo book grades the Super Slab as 5.5-5.10. Choose the line that appeals to you. You can make it as hard or easy as you like.
ProtectionUse the ascent gully (described in Upper Ledges) or Class 4 Scramble to access the top. There are trees suitable for TR anchors. In some spots, gear anchors can also be built.
1) The right side of Super Slab is well over 100 ft long so a 60m rope is too short for a toprope or rappel. You can TR with a 60m if you extend the anchor down about 30 ft. Knot your ends!
2) Recommend top rope only since there is very little pro up high. Definite groundfall potential.
