Fun juggy warm up.


This decent line climbs up a fun right leaning flake before tackling the slab above. Two lines of progress exist after the 2nd clip. Either continue up to the right on the flake as it peters out, or delicately climb left (psychologically taxing leaving the large flake for the tiny feet and handholds of the face). Eventually all lines merge on the slab climbing to the anchors. The grade may be 5.8 or 5.9. (Comment on name/FA/grade and I'll update).


The right slab line immediately left of the Unknown 5.7 dihedral. Starts on a left facing right leaning flake.


5? bolts to anchors.

I believe this climb is called Soup Sandwich. I climbed left at the second bolt and found it closer to 5.9+ (more sustained than the 5.9 directly to the left of this climb).

This is a really cool 5.8! Finally a slab with decent bolt spacing!
