Description

A clean well bolted slab 1st pitch and a little wandering second pitch.
P.1 A bouldery start up nice slab passing 8 bolts to a two bolt rap anchor. (3 star pitch worth doing even if you don't have time for P.2) 70' 5.8+
P.2 Climb up a right diagonal ledge for about 30' to a bolt on the right side of a slab. Up the slab passing more bolts to a rap anchor. 5.7 140'

Location

Located about 200' right of the approach trail on the right side of the first slabs just before a vegetated section and a slight uphill trend to the trail.

Protection

Standard rack

As a friend of mine, while making one of the early ascents, was asked "Whadda you think...5.8?". He replied: "Hell, I've just made four consecutive 5.8 moves and the hard part (the steeper headwall) is still coming up!"

Ditto what Robert posted. This thing kicks my butt at the top. I don't do enough slab to be able to rate it accurately but I don't think it is 5.8+. Unless going right at the top, grabbing vegetation and using more vegetation to hand traverse left to the anchor is what the FAist did. Jun 27, 2017

Perez is definitely thin for a couple of moves at the top, but the route is uncharacteristically (for Oscar) closely bolted, so a fall should be safe. Oct 23, 2017

Yup, considerably harder than the Milky Way pitch (5.9) on Across the Universe. Oct 23, 2017
