BETA PHOTO: The route up the clean slab.


This amazing, visionary line tackles the center of the impossibly smooth looking slab. The rock is primo, perhaps the best in the canyon. It is also nearly blank, and should please any slab aficionado. Expect continuously bouldery, mentally exhausting slab climbing for a long, long time.


The center of the strikingly smooth, green-tinged slab.


bolts + mussy's.

Right. I'm a "slab aficionado", and this thing slapped me right off at the bottom. I can't climb it but I like it, I guess.
