Description Suggest change

At the middle of the slab there is a huge black dike going straight up. Climb up the dike and continue up whenever it disappears. There is one distinct 5.5 crux on a bulge of white granite when the black dike disappears. Climb up the white granite and you’ll be able to traverse over to the black dike when it reappears. Once the slab ends and a featured rocky gully is above you, the descent will be on climber’s right. Follow the fourth class gully down to the dirt.

This route makes an excellent link up with Knob Job on Soaring Eagle Tower and The North Ridge of Hot Tuna Tower. It can be accessed by descending the backside of Hot Tuna Tower. Climbing all three routes in a day is a really fun adventure.

FA note: There were no signs that this area or route had been previously climbed. I'm claiming the first ascent to protect this route from being bolted. It's a beautiful and unique feature that is easy enough for many to free solo. There is no protection available and I do not believe it should be bolted.

The Zebra Slab is behind Hot Tuna Tower at the base of an unnamed grey tower. It has horizontal white dikes and Blackout is the obvious vertical black dike in the center.
