The Emerald City slab is made up of some very short but fun routes. The green color of the slab from the lichen give it away. You can scramble up the low angle slab in between The Emerald City Slab and A-Frame Wall to set up a top rope or you can lead it using your C3's or smallest size TCU's.

Getting There 

After coming up the climbers trail, take a left following the trail passed the cave, the A-Frame wall, across the dirt gully to the right of the lone pine. You'll find a stellar finger crack that splits the slab in half, that's Emerald City..,
