Description

Very good longer (for the area) slab route in keeping with most of the other climbs here, in that it ascends a slabby face using sparse knobs and the occasional slanting dike. Crux is a few interesting moves of thin face climbing above the last bolt to place a piece in a prominent horizontal crack around 3/4 height.

Location

From Peopleburg and the other popular Wafers climbs, there are two options. For both, turn around while facing PB. First option is to head right and go down the obvious draw passing some other climbs on your left. Other option is to go straight ahead through the small cleft and head downhill trending right.

This climb and another unknown 5.6ish bolted route are on the last dome downhill in the wafers formation. Climbs face more or less due east.

Protection

bolts (3) and a single #3 cam for the crack up high.

Beefy chains.

This actually has only three bolts, liberally spaced for Revenue standards. There is a 15+ foot run out between the final bolt and the diagonal crack. Many of the quartz knobs have broken off this route. Moving from the last bolt to the crack feels pretty spicy for 5.9.

Toprope access can be had from the west via some 3rd Class moves. It gets good afternoon shade when many of the other climbs are baking in the sun. Apr 10, 2015
