Description

This is one of the best slab/face routes in the Bluffs. It takes a proud line right up the middle of the Crystal Wall and the 2nd pitch is pretty sustained at 10+/11-.

p1. 10c: The 1st pitch climbs the lower tier of rock, starting up a crack and then onto a slab past a couple of bolts. There is a decent runout to the anchors. This pitch an be avoided by scrambling around to the right

p2. 11a: This is the money pitch. Make a tough high-step move to get to the first bolt and then another difficult move pressing out left onto the slab. Run it out a little to a good ledge and clip the 2nd bolt. The crux of the route is probably the next 15 feet but the entire route keeps coming at you and doesn't relent until a cool mantle at the very top.
