Description 

Mostly gentler slabs.
Most routes can be top-roped.

Top-Roping: To access the top of this rock slab, start to the right of the base and scramble up around the left side of the Beard boulder, then left (west) across the top of The Nose sector.

Getting There 

Between Giving Tree and the Nose. Follow directions to the Beard double-boulder. See the Nose just left of the Beard, then walk west a short ways and see the slabby face. If reach a large tree in an opening, you've gone too far.
