The testpiece on the Red Slab. Pink Slip starts about 15 feet to the left of the small ramp on the right side of the crag. The route shares an anchor with Slip and Slide
and MK '74
, making the top rope an easy proposition. Pink Slip actually converges with Slip and Slide
at about the 50 foot mark. It enters common ground at the traverse on Slip and Slide
. Thin and technical right off the ground, Pink Slip heads up on rather shallow rounded smears. The crux arises well before the convergence point and involves some ultra thin smearing hands and feet that trend to the right a short way. Unlike Slip and Slide
, this is a very distinct crux, and it really seems rather improbable. Place a lot of trust in those feet. Two stars for excellent stone, continuity, and fine climbing.
QDs only. A 60 m rope does the job along with 8 - 9 draws.

A long, fun and sustained route with very thin and very balancy crux moves. The bottom felt thin, fingery, & pumpy (mid-11), then you get a good stance just below the fat diagonal crack. Getting established on the face above and making the moves up and across (12b) to the route on the right is the crux. The 10d, while easier, is still involved. The route was reasonably well-protected at the crux. he 10d was wet when we did it and fairly run-out on the top. No point in taking gear as the opportunities are sparse and the pump is too great.
