Description 

Classic route, definitely worth climbing even though the approach is a bear. Pro is plentiful, but you might find the slab soaked since typical weather in the area is wet, wet, wet.

Approach is about 50 minutes from the outhouse.

Location 

Find the Aurora Slab and you've got the route pegged. It follows the left-hand edge of the slab, in a large dihedral.

Protection 

Gear to two inches.
Anchor is a large knotted cordellette in a crack and a fixed nut, as of 2009

Can rap with a single 70m rope.
