Description

A variation to Slab Alley situated between it and banana peel. Wandery runout slab with some bolts.

Restored in 2010-2011 by Anders Ourom: squamishclimbing.com/squami…

p1 - 5.9 (50 m): Start up the first pitch of Slab Alley and climb to the headwall/trees. Now instead of going right and up, climb the tree and the flake behind it. Be gentle with the tree! Muscle up and left onto easier terrain and trend left to a tree and then up about to the bolted anchor at the end of the second pitch of Slab Alley.

p2 - 5.8 (15 m): Traverse left along the crack to a point directly below a groove/crack with shrubs in it, about a pitch above. This is about half way from the Slab Alley belay to the tree bay on Banana Peel.

p3 - 5.8 (50 m): Follow up the cleaned streak up and left to a bolt, back right and up to a second bolt, left to below the groove and then finally up into the groove. Somewhat runout.

p4 - 5.7 (30 m): Straight up the groove/crack past trees , then when it peters out, there's a spicy 5.9 slab to a large tree ledge. Comparable to Sparrow or Snake.

p5 - 5.7 (60 m): Links back into SA. Up and a bit right from the ledge to a bolt, zig zag up a slab that eases into a small corner with a nice cedar. Continue up the corner to its end, then right into the fifth pitch of Slab Alley.

Location

Start up the apron walk off trail and head left up under the power lines up to the start of slab alley. Route starts the same and then trends up and left to wander between slab alley and banana peel

Protection
