In the Kelman book, the two lower slots are labeled Lower Slot Left (7+) and Lower Slot Right (8). Directly above Lower Slot Right is a 10b that has an intimidating overhanging start to it that eases up into an ever widening crack. The Upper Slot is on the right and the roof on Finally (9+) is visible around the corner.

Last year, after climbing Lower Slot Left, I watched the late, great Craig Luebben fall several times on Upper Slot Left (the 10b) because he was on toprope, and the rope was in the way of the good jams, turning the 5.10 hand jams into 5.12+ offwidth flare. Memorable, to be certain.

Lower and Upper Slot are the right side OW crack systems. We were finishing lower slot and an unknown climber ascends the left crack system.
