One of the tallest climbs at Melrose. The North West Slab climbs superb friction dependent features, up a proud and ominous low angle rounded arête. Great positioning on this one!


Looking at the slab that makes up the northen portion of boulder. Climb ascends far climbers right. Rounded Northwest arête.


Highball, decent landing, pads!
