High Steppin' has lots of high steppin' onto slabby footholds. This is a new route not in the NCCC 1st edition guide.

P1) 5.10a: climb the slab just left of Solar Slab past a bolt. Continue up past ten more bolts to the bolted anchors. ***A SEVENTY METER ROPE IS MANDATORY FOR LOWERING.*** You can rap to the ledge between the first and second bolts with a 60 meter rope and downclimb left.

Toprope variation, 5.10a: at the seventh bolt, angle up and right to a flake, ascend it to its top, then work back left and up to the anchors.


On the SE face, it climbs the slab between Solar Slab and Bud Collins. See the NCCC guide for location of SS and BC.


Eleven bolts to a bolted anchor. You can use an optional 0.5 or 0.75 inch cam between the first and second bolts.

Got on this line last weekend, and it is a great addition to the area. Fun movement for a good pitch length.

I had my eye on it for some time.
