All of the ironing board slabs uphill from the 0.6...


Crux right after the first bolt and last bolt of pitch one. Another crux at the first bolt of pitch 2. Start in a broken section 20 yards right of a big, pine tree. Gain solid rock and the first bolt. A mix of face climbing and a crack that is easily laid back on pitch one. Pitch 2 starts with a vertical section followed by 60 feet of fun, slabbing, rail climbing.


Park at paved pullout 0.6 miles west of the tube. A series of iron like slabs rise high to the east. The route is on a rounded, bulging wall on the far left, 50 yards left of Double O Slab. Approach via broken rock (class 4 in places) or hike the approach gully that is 0.4 miles west of the tube. From the top of the gully/ridge, trek south and up a long slanting ledge. Anchors next to a small tree. Rap to the base.


5 bolts per pitch supplemented with cams and nuts to 1 inch. Two bolt anchors at belay and top of route.
