This route is on the Back Porch, a separate dome less than 5 minutes behind Little Half Dome.

It is a fun slab.


This is left of center; climb the slab just right of low angle crack.


7 [6?] bolts to the anchors.

I only found 6 bolts on this route, but it seemed like enough. The new Haas guide also lists 6 bolts. Oct 23, 2013

Put the anchors in and TRd this same year as Crack a Cold One (but later).
Both anchor sets hand drilled (3 inch holes in granite!!) Came back a year later with A. and E. Butcher when I finally got a power drill and the lead bolts were already installed (most likely by Scott S.)
Fun slab climbing. I felt the crux was prob last 20 feet to anchors. Nov 26, 2012
