This route follows the most obvious crack system when on the right side of the slab. While not particularly long or sustained, it takes gear quite well, is fairly clean, and makes for a nice climb, especially for newer trad leaders.

It might be a little run out at the top, but the climbing for the last 20 feet is quite easy, so it isn't a big deal.


This is the second route from the right of Army Slab.


Smaller to medium cams, nuts, and an old wiggly piton. There is a two bolt anchor at the top. Rope drag isn't a big issue.

This was a fun climb but short. I backed up the old ring piton with a cam, protected the crux (5.7ish) with a cam, then pulled up on the ledge, from there it's 5.3 to the anchors.
Friction is good, shoes stick well. Oct 17, 2015

A little tricky to protect some of the harder moves towards the top of the crack, and run out at the top. Only recommended if you're comfortable leading at 5.7. Nov 26, 2015
