Description

One of the better lines at Bridge Creek, The Slot has great movement, is aesthetic, and has solid, fun holds. The rock is finer grain than that found in the first cluster of boulders.
Start sitting or crouched with your hands on two horizontal crimps, and your feet on low chips trying not to touch the pad beneath you. Work your way up through the crimps, a palmy left leaning rail, and finish via the cool horn and insecure topout.
It's called the Slot because a smaller boulder (that broke off, creating the line) follows the climb behind.
Either use a lot of trickery to get through this thing (v6), or grab the couple crimps available, and pull really hard (v6). Choose Your Own Adventure.

Location

After finding the first cluster of boulders, look straight uphill. You will see a couple of boulders that look like there is no way they could hold a steep line. One of them is split by a vertical crack.
Stumble awkwardly through a jumble of dead and burnt trees and branches, and continue uphill, watching for a steep climb that fits the description.

Protection

3 pads. 1-2 for the jumbled rocks at the base, 1-2 for the ramp and landing above.

I'm my opinion this is one of the best V6 problems in Leavy. The left leaning arĂȘte thing requires some trickery to make easy, or just crank through it. Beautiful! Mar 23, 2014
