to the top! fun slab.


start using good edges to work your way up the right side of the large slab, utilizing ample feet and then the usual devil's lake high step to an excellent top out jug.


about 50 vertical feet below the "thin man corridor" and a little south, near bonamici arete (about 50-100 feet south of that climb). look for a large slab facing the lake with the obvious ledge protruding from beneath.


pads and a spotter, climb is situated on a generous, though precarious, ledge so that is why i gave it the PG 13, otherwise standard issue boulder problem.
