Starting up "The Buick".

CLOSED for 2014 MORE INFO >>>


This is the first crack around the corner from the Green Slab. Although short, it is very steep and has some fun, sporty moves.

Jam and edge up the angling crack system until it is possible to traverse around to the anchors for Green Slab, or set up an anchor and escape to the right.


A few wires and cams.

The wires are for the anchor, have hand sized cams for the climb, with a size larger for the bottom, and a few smaller for the middle. It's also a great toprope from the Green Slab anchors.

This is a fun route but quite strenuous. It is a fun TR after Green Slab. It would be quite a bit more difficult for me to lead than Green Slab due to the pumpy nature.

Fun lead, too bad it is so short. I did not use any wires but stopped at the bolts for Green Slab. Pretty strenuous but you can have gear anywhere you want it.
