Description

This wall and its anchor were originally top roped by Mike Carville and Josh Horniak many years ago and bolted with their permission.

Start on the bottom right of the Slide Wall. Get right into some fairly challenging moves through the first 3 bolts on the face with small crimps. Reach a ledge and step left to pull the bulge. The next 4 bolts prove to be fairly consistently difficult all the way to the top.

Note: The climb is still a little licheny but per the usual the more traffic the better.

Location

Bottom right of the Slide Wall. To the right of the giant blocks.

Protection

7 Bolts. Chain anchor.

At the bottom I never even messed with that crack/ corner, stuck to the face on the good edges.
As for the 5th bolt... it's not easy. I know it involves a high step, can't remember what I grabbed but it's there somewhere, and it's not big! Oct 22, 2017

Cool route, could use a scrub per above suggestion. I moved into the corner pretty early on the bottom section, I tried to dig some of the dirt out of the crack.

Did I miss something around the 5th bolt? Seemed like a real high right foot to nothing. I wanted to rock over, but I couldn't figure out what I was going for... Sep 25, 2017
Marek glad you liked it man! I'll give it another brushing next time I'm out that way, should get better quick with people starting to climb also. Jun 18, 2017

The bottom half of the route has a surprising number of incut, positive edges. The crux is at the top on insecure, slopy holds. The large abundance of lichen is the biggest negative on this route. Otherwise, it would be three stars in my opinion. Thanks for putting this up, Colby. Jun 18, 2017
