Description 

Most climbers will cringe and run before leaving the ground. The site alone of the smooth pink slab will send them packing. For those who stick around an interesting climb awaits. The intimidating slab is slick and technical but the crux is actually a short boulder problem at the first bolt. Once past the crux, tricky edging up the slab leads to a pile of slings and rope.

5 bolts to an awful sling anchor

The anchor for this climb is way far back and doesn't really allow top-roping, and may steal your rope if you try. As of the moment the anchor is two bolts with a sling equalized between the two of them and a biner and one other sling acting as a back up. I cut a completely core-shot piece of rope that was making loops around the slings. Have fun!
