DescriptionThis is the obvious bolted line on Slab 1.
P1: scramble up a short gully to a small ledge, and head straight up to a bolt, or begin climbing a crack and dihedral to the right. Continue straight up, placing some natural gear or clipping some bolts to the belay/rap station. This is a different set of anchors from the South Arete, 5.6.
P2: climb up and to the right, into a series of steeper overlapping slabs (crux). Climb through these, placing protection and occasionally clipping a bolt, until you reach the upper face of the slab, where the rock becomes smoother and "slabby". This is a really fun pitch. Continue up to the 2-bolt rap station, 5.7+.
