Description 

As one approaches up and around the south ridge of Boston Peak, this slab becomes obvious.

Start on the ground or up on a ledge (the ledge works better with a 60 meter rope). As a slab, the climbing is excellent. Trend up and right, at times with some sloping feet, to a point where the slab steepens. Cimb this strenuous section, to an enjoyable section, to a ledge. From here, figure how to finish with minimal holds.

Protection 

Approximately 12 bolts and a two-bolt/chain station. The station is a plumbline 30 meter rappel to the ground but longer otherwise.
