Description 

Slot Machine climbs through the obvious slot in the middle of the wall and just a few feet up the ramp. The climbing is mostly juggy and not difficult. The crux comes in getting past the second clip and standing up to make the third. The rock is largely excellent throughout, and while it was brushed extensively, some lichen still remains. This will clean up well with use, but it may be a good idea to carry a small brush nonetheless.

Location 

Start 15 feet right of Big Dreams. Slot Machine shares is top anchor with BD.

Protection 

Six quickdraws and something for the double bolt anchor.

A bit dirty but should clean up with more traffic. Surprisingly technical....
