A slabby area on the backside of the Super Slab.

The routes don't quite match up with Cowan's guide - I'll use numbers instead.

Getting There 

After passing Tiger Wall, continue straight past the turnoffs to Beginner's Slab and Groove Rock areas. Soon the road from Super Slab rejoins from the left. Turn left here, and park when the road reaches the rocks. Hike down and left - leave the bike trail and walk through a notch to the slabs.

This is the middle of the three bolted slab lines. This is a bit easier than the others. Start by pulling up on a flake and stepping right to the first bolt....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

Just as a historical note, I have seen all of these routes climbed well over 50 times apiece in the '70s. I've climbed most of them all myself at least 1/2 dozen times (got the 5.10 only once). Scotty Gilbert free soloed all of them and worked on the 5.10 route for about a month climbing up and DOWN it with control that blew most of us away. Anyway, they are really fun, smearing, face pitches in a very quiet secluded spot to spend an afternoon. Thanks for putting them up here!

There is also another route in this area above the climbs outlined here. As you come down from the parking area keep an eye out on your left for a very steep, east-facing wall, the route ascends the middle of this face past 2 bolts then steps right to a large ledge. Finish by climbing the aret past a couple more bolts; goes at 5.11ish. There is also a project route that continues straight up the steep face.
