Description

Climb #15: Undercling Slab (5.7, 100') Last of the 3 most poplar climbs. Start near the right end of the long diagonal undercling crack. Follow the crack up and left to its end, setting pro as you go. Pull the crux up onto the face of the slab. Make sure you extend the last piece of gear at the end of the undercling with a double runner to minimize rope drag. Follow easy slab on up, until you get to wide crack. Here you can either pull up and out onto the slab face and finish up through the tree, or, you can stay right until the last 10’-15' and jam/lie-back the short vertical crack.
