BETA PHOTO: Slick Rock Slab


A fun easy sport route up a fine slab of granite.


This the climb with the bolt right off the boulder. You can just about reach over and clip it. The climb starts from the ground to the right. So your choice - you can start from the ground, you can preclip the bolt and start from the ground, or you can totally cheat and step across from the boulder.


5 bolts. A little runout at the top but its very easy up there.

I thought the hardest part for me was between bolts 3-4 where it blanks out and you have to make a smearing move that seemed scary to me. I thought this climb was a little more difficult than Mom's Rx next door. But great intro to slab climbing!
