Northerly facing steep slab wall. There are several giant and stacked blocks on the bottom left of the wall that are quite impressive to look at. Still needs traffic to clean up, but overall a really splendid wall with great crimps.

Getting There 

Just before negativity cave/slab approach follow the cairns down and left (trail leads down to steel monkey wall). As you begin to descend the wall is very prominent on the right against the skyline (see picture under "Drowning Machine").

This wall and its anchor were originally top roped by Mike Carville and Josh Horniak many years ago and bolted with their permission. Start on the bottom right of the Slide Wall. Get right into some fairly challenging moves through the first 3 bolts on the face with small crimps. Reach a ledge and step left to pull the bulge. The next 4 bolts prove to be fairly consistently difficult all the way to the top. Note: The climb is still a little licheny but per the usual the more traffic the better....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
