The Last Wave Slab is a nice piece of granite about 100' high and a little over 100' wide. It's located directly above Sea of Holes and Wedge. It's a nice way to finish a slab route and it brings you near to the summit. It presently has 7 climbs on it and is named after it's best route.

Getting There 

To access it from the top of Sea of Holes and Wedge area climb up and a little right about 150' passing 2 tree ledges. From the top of Sliding Board's final steep headwall traverse easily and directly left about 300'.

There are several modest routes up here on the Last Wave Slab. Most can be reasonably set up as Top Ropes, although having someone on the ledge "directing" the person above is considerably easier than trying to figure out the climbs from their tops. If you want to TR some of these, a 70m rope is helpful, plus long slings to set anchors and directionals off of trees.

From the very top of Standard, walk skier's right (climber's left) along the top of the cliff, about 150 ft (+/- ?) to a low angle swell. Scramble down this to trees and rap to the ledge system.
