The Slab is a boulder a bit out of the way from the rest of the upper boulder field, however it still houses a couple of classic, committing, somewhat sandbagged problems. While very fun and exciting, some of the top outs are a bit dicey, and may not be the best for someone breaking into the grade.
There are two approaches to the Slab.
1. From Around The World, follow a trail east that works it's way gradually downhill under the Platform a little ways until it starts to turn south and meets up with the Taylor's Canyon trail. The Slab is essentially where these trails meet.
2. A more direct approach is to stay on the Taylor's Canyon trail instead of going into the upper field the standerd way past Castle Rock. Once you get into the trees, keep an eye out on the left for a small trail and the boulder.

Think this one might be referred to as "Hard to Find" boulder in the Beck-Russo guide, but the Slab in Hadley's guide, though it's not really all that hard to find.
