Description

Eat the Meek is a wonderful easy featured slab. The bolts are well spaced(expect 25' runouts in 5.5 terrain), but one is close by whenever you are faced with a difficult move.

Location

This route is well above the Egg proper.

Trudge up the gully past the west side of the Egg. Once above the egg, keep going as the gully winds around the right side of a clean slab. Eat the Meek begins where hiking up the gully goes from unpleasant to thoroughly unpleasant. 15-20 minutes from the base of the egg.

To descend with a 70 meter rope, rap angling well to the right, and then bushwhack down to the start. The intermediate 2 bolt anchor would let you reach the ground with 2 raps if equipped with chains. This seems like the only reason for its existence since the route is easily done in 1 pitch, and it would be great to be able to skip the nasty bushwhack.

Protection

9 bolts and a 2 bolt intermediate anchor at 100', which is easy to skip.

Added biners to the mid anchor, so you can do 2 raps with a 70m. May 24, 2017
