The steep but easy start to Deceptive Slab.

Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>


This is the slab bolted line next to "Easy Does It " (5.8). It is roughly 50 feet in length. I forgot how many bolts, but I used under 10 draws.

If anyone knows what this one is called or how many draws it has or any other info, please let me know, so I can edit it.


It is to the right of "Easy Does It" (5.8). I believe it is the farthest right bolted line.


5-6 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

It should be noted there is an active hornet's nest just right of this route under a small roof. Either climb this route early, early morning when it's cool or, even better, wait until the next good freeze. Hornets are lame.
