Description 

The "slabs" are the obvious large, "Willie Slide Type" slabs on the west side (left side, driving north towards Errol NH) of the notch about 1/2 mile south of the AT Parking lot.

There are at least three to five separate lines possible on the slabs, plus the "Old Speck Stream" climb.

The slabs are sort of a "spread eagle" formation with a longer central slab and two shorter slabs on each side.

Getting There 

Park about 1/3 mile south of the AT parking. If you can't park completely off the road, or if it is snowing and the road likely to be plowed, please consider parking at the either the AT or Moose Cave lot(s) and walking the road.

Basically, walk directly into the slab, picking up the shallow (but steep) drainage that leads to the bottom of the middle slab.
