Description 

The route is a slabby face with a pair of vertical-running cracks that offer purchase for your finger tips and toes as you work your way skyward. Its all slab with larger cracks running parallel with the ground leading to the anchor.

Location 

Route located on the right must indent of the smaller, gum drop feature located right and in front of the main South Horror Rock section of Hall of Horrors. To establish TR anchor, proceed to the base of My Senior Project and continue up the ramp and scramble to the top of the feature to build the anchor.

Protection 

Must build your own TR anchor using webbing and locking carabiners. Recommend using a runner/sling to make an adjustable anchor point from the master anchor point.

To anyone who may come across this post, please advise if you have seen this route in another guide book, forum, etc. While I took artistic liberty in naming this route myself, having climbed it on 11 January 2016, I have not seen it listed in any guide books at all. Thus, while I believe it to be a new route I named, I am also fully aware it could be an existing route from years before. Thanks!

Hi Andrew. There is already another route with the name Slip and Slide (on Locomotion Rock) so you might want to pick another name.
