True to it's name The Landlord covers a large swath of real estate and if you want to reach the anchors you'll need to dig deep and pay up front with technical slab skills.

Start near the left side of the south face and wander up and right along the steep slab using smears, edges, loose plates and the odd patch of good rock.

Despite the number of bolts on this route it's no sport climb and has a bit of an adventurous feel to it. 80' rap down to the base.


Left of center on the south face.


11 bolts (5/16"), 2 bolt anchor/rap (3/8")

I was wondering what this was as we descended Walk on the Wild Side; looked like it'd be really fun, I definitely want to hit it up next time I'm in the area. For slab it did look extremely well bolted (albeit with older hangers).
