Description 

This route is on the Slabbo's East face, which is pretty easy to find once you get out to top of the world. We stopped at a sharp right corner before the quarry where an old road closed sign is lying on the road. Walk up this old closed road and you will be atop the slabbo in no time flat. This is past the trail to the gemstones.

This route starts just behind a spruce tree on the east face with a sweet but short section of jamming. Pull through a small bulge and battle wide world (right of bolted 11a friction)to a sweet little section of hands again. Go through some big rock blebs and belay under the chimney.

Pitch 2 can either be the cool 5.5 chimney or you can slab up Twoys for Twats, a stiffy lil 10a friction piece.

Walk off right back to the base. The guide book sshows two sets of anchors near the top of P1. The set labeled 70' we never saw, the set labeled 120' has had the hangers removed. Its worth it to go to the top anyway.

If P1 was longer and less wandery this would easily be a 2 star route, its pretty cool.
