Description 

For some really fun slab climbing around Gunnison this is the place to go. With routes running around 40 feet on the north-facing granite, it is easy to knock out everyone of these in a morning or afternoon. These sport climbs range from around 5.8-5.11 with chain anchors. For those who want to top rope, there is an easy fourth class to the top around to the left of the slabs.

Getting There 

After reaching the top of the hill take the second left and continue straight for about a mile and a half. After passing tiger stripe wall on the left make your SECOND left and the slabs will be straight ahead and on the right.

The Riddler 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CO : Gunnison : ... : Super Slabs
I can't tell whether this is Riddler or Temporal Anomaly in Cowan's guide. The description matches Riddler best so I'll assume that's it. Another good slab route. Clipping the 3rd bolt is tough! Going straight up at this bolt is really hard - it's much easier to work up on the right....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
