Jay Peterson at the crux


This a a fun, little, intermediate route; however, be careful at the start, because the rock can be a little crumbly in sections. After that, it is bomber.


This is the route to farthest right which starts on a mini-ledge.


Three bolts to a two chain anchor.

First off [excellent] name for the slab, [beginner] says it all, this 5.9 is quick and over before you know it. Juggy arete start leads to, [stretchy] face climbing moves to anchors. Good first moderate lead.

This route, and the other 2 bolted lines on Beginner's Slab - 2 bolts each to bolt anchors, there are no longer any chains. - 2 bolts being plenty of pro for these fun little lines.
