This is the complex of slabs of which the Vertical Wall forms the left (north) edge.

Getting There 

From the Vertical Wall, continue down the climber's trail that hugs the base of the aptly named Vertical Wall. From the toe of the rock, walk south, uphill, a short distance along the base of the slabs, to whatever you may want to climb.

The map shows the wrong location. Maybe someone can fix it.

George, you can move it by hovering over "edit" and click on "edit properties". Then, you can move the satellite map over the crag. Or you can just input the GPS coordinates if you have them.

I moved the location on the Google aerial. I think that I correctly pinpointed the Slippery Slope. However, I have a hard time seeing into the shadows on the map, and I can't see all aspects of what I think is this rock outcrop, even when it's greatly zoomed in.
