The first ascent of Los Pantalones De Alex

Description 

A very clean bolted slab up the right side of Alex Wall. Follow bomber bolts (6 or 7) to a bolted sport anchor. As with the rest of the wall, the route gets harder as the slab get steeper. After climbing over a small roof, very thin moves takes you past another bolt, then to the anchor. At the crux, you can climb left of the bolts and diagonal right to the anchor, or you can climb directly up the line of bolts and enjoy the thin goodness. Fun slab.

Location 

The right (north) end of Alex Wall. This is the slab that faces east and faces directly towards The Journey Home. It is easily identified as the cleanest slab in the gulley of the Back of Beyond.

Weird anchor. Never seen side by side ramshorns before - i've always seen a single ramshorn on two vertically oriented bolts attached by chain.

Really good clean climbing. It would be super popular if it was near the road.
