Description 

Slim Pickins climbs the initial face climbing up the northwest arete of Jello Tower. The start is shared with the MF Overhang route. At the roof of MF Overhang, stack a couple stoppers behind the chalked up horn, shake out a bit, then move right around the roof on fun face moves on very positive holds! This is an entertaining variation to the original MF Overhang route.

Location 

Northwest arete/face of Jello Tower.

Protection 

Mostly small to medium cams, with one 3" piece (blue camalot) for just after the crux face moves.

This is a fun pitch. I have a hard time deciding which is better: Slim or MFO...
