Description Suggest change

The Slash is a rarely climbed route route with its fair share of munge, loose junk and lack of beta. This isn't a route for those who rarely make it to the Leap, rather for those who are drawn to the unknown and looking for something different and obscure, which the Leap is well known for.
Start by climbing up a mungy crack that is the first crack you come to when you look to the right from the start of Absolutely Billy. Climb up about 140ft to the first ledge you come to and make a belay there. Pitch 2 climbs up the obvious "slash" feature going out diagonally to the right. Belay on the big ledge which lies just above the top of Hospital Corner and Crazy Daze.
You can continue up any number of ways to the top of the formation, the best of which is probably Dead Tree Direct, or do a short scramble down to the top of Hospital Corner and rappel from there.
