A good ol' technical slab climb, good luck finding anything to pull down on. Start with your foot in the big hole down low and make your way up the slab avoiding going too far left to the very low angle section. Uses the big hole about 8 feet up.


The first of the good technical slab climbs on the great slab, obvious low pocket type thing and another big one about 8 feet up.


pad or two.

I'm guessing this is 20 feet, and not 20 pitches?
