Originally rated PG13, the consensus among the few who have climbed it in the past years is R. The line remains dirty, can be wet for months, and is a challenge at 10.a.
All of that said, this is a really good line, almost solid smearing w/few 'holds'.
Head straight up from the belay towards the mini roof/step. First bolt is 15'+, and it is heady pulling over the step. Pass 2 more bolts ad then be prepared for 20' of unrelenting 5.10 smear-fest. Just don't think about the fall potential, the roof below, of the dirt and munge.


From the 'Plumas County' road sign, head up the dirty gully to a large ledge and a bolted belay. From the ledge, the first route to the left. All the routes on Plumas Slab start at this belay.


4 bolts and bolted anchor.

This route was dirty and spooky 25 years ago. Can't imagine it got better with time. As a side note, we never went back to replace the button heads on Plumas Slab. Don't know what the bolts are like now.

Still the buttons. Definitely gets your head going. There are days when i think it would be worth going out and getting this place cleaned up; then i wake up.
