This route was originally climbed with no bolts as the first pitch of an onsight ground-up adventure climb that went to the top of the buttress. Unfortunately, the upper pitches were not as good quality and this pitch had ground fall potential. The establishment of Lizard Gizzards facilitated resurrecting it as a single pitch climb. The route was cleaned and 2 bolts were added by the first ascensionist in April of 2013. Apr 25, 2013

It's kind of hard to tell from your description, but I think that you traversed onto the route Digi. Currently, Slow Ride ends at the first anchor that you got to, but originally there were an additional two pitches that went directly up from that anchor. Unfortunately, those pitches were pretty wandering and not as good. Perhaps in the future a better line will be figured out. Oct 13, 2013

Thought this route was better than just 2 stars. Great warm up for other stuff and a bit of variety.

This route is not sorted correctly. Nov 12, 2013
