Description 

Start along the traversing crack and climb up and around the corner onto the face following the bolts. short but sweet, this route is worth hiking to. Use the sling on other side of boulder to aid up to the top and sling the boulders on top for an anchor. this is a slab climb with very small holds. This climb appears in the Fry Guide but it is unnamed and I only named it to help with the confusion of where to find boulders here due to the many splitting trails. this climb is a very obvious marker on the trail and giving it a name helps that much more.

Location 

located a few hundred feet down hill from the aid boulder. when the trail gets pinched and you have to squeeze through the gap you know you've reached "slim jim". clip into fixed sling and down climb back of boulder to get down.

Protection 

bolts and large boulder to sling.
