  • Description 

    Start as for Sponge Bath. Climb the slab, clip the first bolt and then climb straight up to a short corner past a bolt to the anchor.


    Small gear and a couple of quickdraws will get you to the anchor.

    A fun slab route. I protected the last move to the anchor with a #1 Ball Nut; another bolt here might be a good idea.

    The slab down low is slippery when wet and is not protected. Be careful.

    Fun slab route. There are two new bolts (in addition to the ones in the picture), one 10ft up from the first bolt (in the picture), and a second new bolt between the last bolt and the anchors. I only used two small cams - 2inch and a 1/4inch to protect the rest. Fixed protection are in really good condition.

    We placed a nut between the second and third bolts.
