Top of the slab in 2014. Trees dead from 2010 bru...
The main slab faces southwest. It is 80 feet wide with lower angle slab to right and more vertical routes to the left. The routes are generally between 40-60 ft high. Most are leadable and all can be top roped from trees and boulders at the top. Bring a long static or webbing since many trees near the edge have died.
As the blue-blazed approach trail reaches rock and becomes steeper, turn left onto an unmarked climbers path that follows the wall down about 80 feet past the Right Side
routes. Eventually you will be able to scramble up a short wall to the base of the slab. Be careful. The move is harder than it looks, especially if you are wearing a pack or the ground is damp.
You can access the top of the Slab directly by continuing on the blue-blazed trail up to the top of the hill. Then follow the climbers trail down and left to the top of the Slab.
