Right of Pathway is Slab Happy, 5.4 X, (Face), 1-star and right of it is Sloper, 5.3 (low angle crack left of arete) Both FA'd by Ken Mar 1994.

Gritstone starts a couple of feet right of the arete and is 5.7 without using the block. (My notes say:"using the block = 5.4")

The final climb on this slab in the Blue Book is Fragile Face 5.7+ R and starts 10 ft right of the arete and climbs the "flaky looking face".


It's a Nichols "R", need we say more?
