Gabe on route!


Best slab to be found at Red Wing. Super good rock quality with awesome balancy moves. Crux is right in the middle, followed by crimpers and pockets leading to the anchors.


Starts to the left of Don't Mean Nothin' on top of a large pedastal. You can and should belay from the pedastal, but be sure to stick clip the first bolt (which doesn't require a stick clip).

Nice technical slab route. Standing and racking up on top of the crumbly pedestal can be iffy. We used two cams and set up anchors for the belayer in the wide crack left of the route. Alternatively, the belayer could clip with a long sling into the first bolt.

I found it easiest to have the belayer on the ground below the crumbling pedestal.

It's definitely my favorite route at redwing. Super fun moves on very thin holds. Stay along the clip-line for the send at full value. I though the belay spot was good, i think some of the loose rocks was cleared out.
