Description

The first slab climb at the shredding! Bring your slab game, and be ready for some head scratching. Follows the obvious bolt line from the comfortable ledge to chains.

Location

From the road, locate the right hand buttress (The elephants head). The slab is to climbers left 40'. Shiny bolts.
If you rapped in, top out and walk off left. If you started at the base, a 70m gets you to the bottom from the upper chains, or there is a rap station at the ledge 25' from the ground.

Protection

10 draws plus biners for the chains. A 25' rope to get down to the chains from the tree (see area description) helps. 60m rope gets you up and down.

This is a great addition to The Shredding! Thanks for the hard work Jadian. You guys need to give this route a go. Fun slab, safe moves and a bit spicy! Apr 29, 2016
