BETA PHOTO: Slab!!!!


If you like hard slab climbs in the South Platte, this is for you! Hard, bold, from the ground up ethics is the name of the game here! Just remember: slab skills or hospital bills!

This climb shares the offwidth start to Harvey's Crack. Work your way up the offwidth for about 20 to 30 feet until you can step out onto a small "ledge" on the face.

P1. Traverse right working your way to the first bolt, around 5.10, and then go up to the anchors. You will see the anchors for Orion just below the first set of anchors for this climb. This pitch is rated at 5.10d and is around 160 feet long.

From the anchors, bring up your second, and contemplate your fate!

P2. Work your way up the blank slab for six bolts to another set of anchors just below the big looking "flakes" in the middle of the wall, 5.11c.

Rap down both sets of anchors.


Start Harvey's Crack, then traverse on to the blank looking slab following the bolt line. You will need two ropes to rap each pitch.


There are 5 bolts plus anchors on the first pitch, and there are 6 bolts plus anchors on the second pitch. For pitch one, you will need gear for the crack up to 7".
