Description 

This might be the some of the best rock in Tanners. The low angle slab looks foreshortened from the ground, it's 200+ feet long and after that it rears up into a nice headwall in places. The features on this slab are amazing, it reminds me of the City of Rocks in places. Black streaks and patina abound on it.

This area holds moderate slab pitches and a few challenging sport pitches too. The belays are all on really cool ledges with awesome views down Tanners gulch and across the canyon.

Snowpack leaves dirt and rocks here and there down lower so be on your toes. The rock is broken at the bottom but seems to climb enjoyably.

Most of the routes on the right hand side (south) have sub-belays at a common ledge at about 30 feet up. This is so you can see and hear your leader. I recommend using it for the first few times up there,

The pine tree in the left hand corner on the slab had some webbing on it so tight I had a hard time getting my knife behind it to cut it loose as the bark was growing around it. The tree bears that webbing scar. This was one of two pieces of webbing we found in the canyon while climbing.

The entire area was put up ground first.

Getting There 

Hike all the way up the gulch. Passing Pirate Treasure is a obvious low angle slab with a steep broken start and a steep headwall with black streaks. This is the Hidden Heavenly Slab.

Yet another great vision from prolific choss muncher TP, this 3-pitcher takes you for a wild ride up the far right side of the Hidden Heavenly Slab, mixing ridiculously steep juggy moves with delicate slab work.Pitch 1 - Straight to business: after a couple of moves and the first clip, tackle a steep bulge on black rock using bad smears and not-so-great sidepulls. Make a touchy second clip and establish on a small shelf. From there, follow a short crack and cruise up the water streak toward the ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah

This is a great crag! I've done 7th Way and All About Volume and I can say these are some of the best multi-pitch outings in Tanners, if not LCC. Thanks to TP, Luke and crew for pioneering these sweet lines.
