Work you way up either side of the slaby face, then using big holds climb the overhanging face to the anchors.


Starts at a 6 foot wide slaby face.


4 bolts to rap rings.

If you climb the arete on the left of the bolts, the climb is very easy once you're past the first bolt. 5.7 maybe? I haven't done the inside corner to the right yet, but that may be the full 5.10 variation. Watch for some loose stuff halfway up.

I believe if you follow the slab straight up, avoiding the jugs to the left until the top, it is 5.10. I also believe that is a bit contrived, and there are enough quality 5.10's at safe harbor that this route should be downgraded to reflect the line of least resistance. I'd give it an .8

I believe the Sighting is 5.10d ish, and the 5.8 ish easy one next to it is Econoline.
