DescriptionThis is the 2nd route from the left of the obvious routes on the right side of West Slabs. It may be identified with a cruxy looking start below a bolt maybe 12 feet up.
Find some small, positive edges and hop aboard. Make a highstep and get situated to clip the bolt. A budding 5.9 leader may want a stick clip. Move up on easier terrain to the 2nd bolt. A fall on this section is unlikely but would likely hurt a lot. Make a weird move up and leftward to get the 3rd and 4th bolts. A optional cam could be placed before the 3rd bolt. Pull the tiny bulge and pick your sequence. You can join Unknown 7+ to the left or move up over angling ledges/cracks. Clip the 2 bolt intermediate anchor (not rappable), clip another 2 bolts, and gain a ledge with a 2 bolt anchor with rappable hangers.
There is another 2 bolt anchor perhaps 70' above.
