Robert finding his way up Super Slab.


Start right in the middle of the boulder. Do some easy first couple of moves up and past the big crack running through the base, then the slab begins. There are definitely holds the whole way, and the feet are virtually everywhere, with 'good' feet interspersed throughout as well. It get continously harder moves as you move up the rock, with the final moves possibly being the crux. You can go straight up for a harder variation, or cut right at the top to the decent incut crimp.

This is a good problem, a highball, that is mentally challenging to commit the final moves.


Heading up the trail, before you get to the first noticeable boulder problem on the left, cut right on a little trail heading down. This is right after you ascend the rock staircase coming up the trail, and 'come around the corner'. You can see the top of the slab from here.


Two pads are better than one, with a spotter adding that extra layer of comfort

Took this off my todo list. It's an awesome highball problem with the crux right at the top. But i'm not bold enough to do it..
