Description

Immaculate slab with lengthy runouts located away from The Slabs crowds. Be solid at this grade.

Location

Starts 100' above the approach trail at the left most end of The Slabs just before the trail starts to head uphill toward Waiting for Comeau. You can climb the 5.1 dike of Miner-Joseph-King Dike or walk a few feet further to an unprotected 5.4 slab and up to the 2 bolt anchor (large ledge) on P.2 of M-J-K D.

Protection

Small wires and cams and a few draws.

Dark Horse 5.8

P.1 Climb clean slab for 40' up to a small left facing corner (small wires), trend right and up 25' to a bolt then up 25' to an overlap (small cams)step over overlap up to a 2 bolt anchor.
P.2 Head up and right stepping over M-J-K Dike toward a bolt on a clean slab and up to a large Pine tree.

We TR-ed P1 of this on our way down rapping off of Sea of Holes via the big pine tree/ Dike Route rap line. Never saw the Bolt on P1...we were probably too far left as we only took one step right at the shallow corner, then went straight up. Nice line and we felt it "more sticky underfoot" than P1 of Pathfinder, which seems to get more polished every time I do it. (Then it might have been the chilly rock on this Nov day.) 7 days ago
