This 90 ft route reminds me of some of the slabs pitches out in Red Rocks, NV. Follow the well protected slab to a lower face mantle and easy crux clip then continue to a mantle on the second ledge. The next mid route crux requires the use of toe and finger tips to balance up and left to the generous clipping holds. Mantle on to the third ledge, clip left of the large flake and continue straight up to rap anchors or climb all the way to the top of the cliff face.


Climb is situated in the middle of the South Providence bluff and on the left half of what is known as the Slab Town Buttress. This was the first route bolted at South Prov and is the most obvious, easiest path up the west side of the Slab Town Buttress.

Pulled off a hold here - luckily didn't fall because the bolts are pretty runout and could be bad. If you do this climb, get ready for choss all the way up.
