Description 

The left side of the Fatty Bolger crag has four lower angle sport climbs. They are all good introductory leads. This is the hardest of them and can be quite tough if you make a conscious effort to limit yourself to holds along the bolt line. It can be made easier by straying left and right at times. These are some of the best and only introductory sport climbs in the area, and although they are fairly low-angle, they are worthwhile. Despite being low-angle, they aren't the friction slabs that are so common in this area; there are holds.

Location 

Left side of Fally Bolger crag, second line left of the gully.

Protection 

4 bolts plus 2 bolt anchor

Stepladder and Moominland(the middle two routes at Jug Slab) were originally named, cleaned and climbed by myself and Dave Vocadlo in 1993. Both were soloed after cleaning because we didn't have a drill. Jeff Thomson and Glenn Payan bolted them in 1996 with our permission and added the adjacent two 5.6s (Hamish's and David's) as well.

The originally soloed line of Moominland trends left at the top following holds towards Stepladder and is 5.8. As cleaned and bolted, the finish directly above the last bolt is a little bit harder.
