Description 

This route starts about 30 feet to the right of Arch of Delight. Climb directly up and at about 25-30 ft up, pass over a sharp, knife-like flake and move left. From here continue more or less straight up. The route TBD moves right at the Knife-like flake.

Alt. Finish: After making the move left from the flake and up a bit, one can move back to the right (but not as far as T.B.D.), and then finish straight up to the large ledge about 25 ft left of the huge oak tree.





To Be Deleted...

See photo posted to Athlete's Feat
OR the photo with red route-line posted to "T.B.D." In the photo posted to T.B.D. the "Last Climb on the Slab" reaches the small arch at the 90-degree turn to the right [the 'knife-like flake is just above] and then steps LEFT and then climbs up the rock just to the RIGHT of the hanging tope rope.
[Note: The should probably be called "Last Climb 'Completely' on the slab, since the climb "Slab to Corner" actually starts LEFT of this climb.

ROUTE, Start about 30 feet right of the left-end of the slab.
Climb directly up; about 25-30 ft up, pass over a sharp, knife-like flake and move left, ["ALT 1"] then more of less directly up [ALT 2] to finish on the large ledge about 25 ft left of the huge oak tree.

ALT 1- "ALT 1" is the route shown as T.B.D. with the route (red line) climbing well to the right.
ALT 2 - After making the move left and up a bit, an ALTERNATE move back to the right (but not as far as the red line in T.B.D.) can be made, and then straight up. EXPLORE !!!

Protection 

Top Rope, although an old bolt hole will be passed on the way up, so the climb probably was led in ages past.
