Description

This route is another good spicy slab climb. It provides good training for Tuolumne. It can be linked into a single mega pitch although rope drag becomes a factor on delicate moves high on the route.

P1: 5.7, climb the slabby corner to the right of Born to be Mild, head towards a bolt at the steepest section. Clip the bolt and head left to the anchor.

P2: 5.8, climb right past a single bolt to small/medium gear. The route goes into a large slabby corner, this corner is dirty bring a nut tool for cleaning place lots of gear in the crack before the big wide corner. This is the R rated pitch, be prepared for 30+ foot run outs.

Location

Just to the right of Born to be mild, and to the left of Thin as ice.

Protection

gear to 1 inch (lots of stoppers), 3 bolts. 2 bolt anchor shared with "Born to be Mild" and a two bolt chain anchor.

slinging the bolt probably makes this more PG-13 than R. Sep 19, 2016

The upper crack and corner can also be quite damp. Nothing some slab mastery or stemming can't take care of. If you are feeling a bit run out at the top there is a chopped 1/4" bolt that can be slung with a small stopper. Sep 18, 2016
A long section of the first pitch seems to be perpetually wet... Aug 9, 2015
