Blob Slab is the smooth, low-angle, granite apron on the left side of East Blob. Most routes here are runout slab climbs established in the 1970s. A few bolts and a few gear placements are available, but leaders should be confident making moves above pro. A 2-bolt anchor exists at the top of the slab at the top of A Hike With Ludwig Dude; this can be used to set up a top rope (60m recommended).
One modern sport route is here: A Hike For Y2K (11d).

This isn't my route, but I stumbled up most of this today thinking I was doing Crack Tack. To complete the MP listing, I credit Bob's book, #59; as it is described well, but not drawn in the photo. (For fun, read my comment of Crack Tack.)This is a remarkable line, but runout for sure. Each crux has a well placed 1/4" bolt nearby, but the lichen suggests it isn't done much. It was too necky for me at each crux, but I could almost tell the moves were th...[more] Browse More Classics in Colorado

Don't depend on Bob's guidebook for accurate info on this wall. There are a few climbs that are mislabeled in the topo!
