Another fun well bolted pure slab in the vein of its modern neighbors to the right (There's Friction Afoot and Contra Friction), City Slicker will let you enjoy 70 some feet of friction without ever crapping yourself in fear (a common issue when climbing the old school lines further to the left).
Getting off the ground is the crux with a couple touchy moves (or a deadpoint) to a chickenhead and subsequent shenanigans to get your feet on it. Things ease up considerably after that with mellow slab padding past closely spaced bolt to another slightly harder section before the anchor.


City slicker is the 3rd bolted line from the right of the buttress, it takes the plumbline up a bulge following tan hangers.


Bolts (7 or 8) to an independent bolted anchor.
