BETA PHOTO: Auchentoshen 5.11d+. Climbs the slab beginning in...

Description 

A slab characterized by great brownish colored granite for the first 25 feet, the rock then changes to a grayish color speckled with green lichen. The climbable features diminish and the route gets cruxy. Pull a steeper feature and mantle a ledge to find the chains.
Was given 5.11b but subsequent ascents have pushed up closer to 5.12a.

Location 

The left side of the wall. Starts from the road and is marked by 3" wide drilled hole (another relic from this 90 year old roadway), which you can actually use as a starting foot hold.

Protection 

8 bolts and chains

Excellent. (If you have the strange taste for slab climbing that few do.) This thing will test your technical climbing knowledge, route reading skills, and reward you with a fun top-out at the end!
