East Face Slab Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: East Face Slab as seen from the Joirney Home on th...
This is the clean slab on the west side of the Back Of Beyond
. Facing directly east, it gets sun until 2pm. It is easily seen when entering the area and is home to a handful of bolted and mixed lines. The East Face Slab
is somewhat divided into the Alex Wall
, and the more recent Moss Lords
route. The Alex Wall
is the obvious clean face with Los Pantalones De Alex
and Hot Patootie Bless My Soul
. Having some of the most solid and aesthetically pleasing rock up here, this crag acts as a nice place to start or finish. Depending on the season, consider chasing the shade? Mostly moderate lines exist here, both single and multi-pitch. Bolted anchors can be found on all routes and a 60 meter rope will is all that is needed.
Follow directions into the Back of Beyond area, when approaching the crag, follow the trail up the drainage until the area opens up. Look to your right (west) and locate a clean, striking slab with bolts.

One long pitch that climbs bottom to top along the left edge of the face. Fun movement over slabs, roofs, and edges up to the obvious tombstone feature at the top. This lead will use all of a 60 meter rope. Back clean the first draw to reduce rope drag. 3 bolt anchor is a ways back from the summit block in solid rock. Extending the belay with slings or the rope will give the best view of the second. Top roping from the ground is not really an option.
