Description

Slot Machine goes up the "arete" on the right hand side of the large slot in the corner. The anchor may appear to be placed too high; however, there are holds on the bulge and in the corner that allow you to get high enough to clip in with the usual single length sling girth hitched from your harness.

Location

The route it located in the Toasty Corner to the right of the 2150 Wall.

Protection

5 bolts plus a 2 bolt welded cold shuts anchor. Using a stick clip for the 1st bolt is recommended. Otherwise you can scramble up inside the large slot in the corner, and reach/stretch around right to place a "courtesy clip". Then drop down and start the route from the ground.

There was at least one spinning hanger. I think there might have been more, but I was more concerned with the football-size death block just below the anchors. I meant to mark it with an x but forgot after I set up my rappel. Gonna start bringing a small prybar with me, so I can get these killers off the wall when I come across them. Be super careful in this area in general. The other routes had a few smaller pieces break on me too, and since the base is so sloping, a decent-sized rock could hit anyone standing down there.
