Description

Start below the beige hangers towards the right side of the Slope City wall. Climb several difficult moves to a good sharp edge block below the 4th bolt. Continue up with long moves to the crux section at bolt 6. Climb wild moves up between the 2 giant cobbles and reach a "quasi" rest below the final roof. Continue to the right and a few more powerful moves take you through this steep section to the chains.

Location

Left of the black cave proper on the right side of the steep Slope City wall. The route follows the beige colored hangers.

Protection

9 bolts to chain anchors with lowering biners.

This one's the best of the bunch and seems cleaner than the .11s. Some tough climbing down low then real cool moves past the giant cobbles! There's a unique, "meat hook" move off one big cobble and a pretty cool "super sloper" match. Watch the little bite at the end! A pumpy route for sure. Sep 6, 2015
