This route goes up the center of the slab. Start at a discontinuous crack with two small trees growing out of the crack. Touching these trees with your feet or hands is off route and bad karma – let them live! Move up to a stance where you clip the first bolt and then dance your way up past two more bolts. The crux is between the 3rd and 4th bolt.

At the 4th bolt, join the “Adam Kopley Memorial Route” and climb up the previously mentioned crack and then past two bolts. Near the top, do not go left, but rather go straight up to a crack. If you go slightly left and then right to the crack above the last bolt, you will drop the grade to 5.10a, so get the full value and go straight up. A Grey Alien cam or equivalent may be handy in the crack. Finish at the horizontal ledge with two Metolius rappel bolts. A single rope rappel will get you to the bottom.

First ascent: Mark Fletcher (roped solo), June 3, 2012.


This route is in the center of the Super Slab area. Follow approach directions for the Adam Kopley Memorial Route.


Six bolts plus Purple and Grey Alien cams or equivalent
