Description 

Stand up or sit down. Either is difficult. Crux off the ground at the base. Under cling right of dihedral and stem feet on left wall using thin and high foot holds. Muscle through small overhang and pull high feet over corner. Work to right outside of dihedral and pull easier v~1 moves up face using thin flakes. Reach high over top ledge to awkward and airy top out.

Location 

At the end of Teton Canyon Drive, head up Table Rock Trail head about 3/4 mile to first waterfall. After small wooden bridge, take a left and hike about 100 yards to boulder field at the base of the waterfall. Necessary Hops is located on the back side (North) of "Slab Lab". Two 16~20 Ft slabby fins, 3ft thick and 3ft apart, 20 ft wide. Necessary Hops is the second most obvious line to the right of the back corner as the base of the boulder starts up hill.

Protection 

Multiple pads on hill side. Two or more spotters may be necessary, as this is pushing highball and on small hill side with ankle breakers. Dont let the dangers scare you off this epic problem. It can be protected well and is worth a go.
