This well-bolted slab route gets progressively more challenging the farther you get off the ground. If 5.10 slab is a bit over your head to lead, the route can be top-roped by climbing the 5.7 flake route just to the right and using the anchors shared by both climbs.


This route is on the second tier of Blair I, just left of Nick's Loose Flake Variation. You can rap from the top to the ground with a 60 or 70 meter rope. Alternately, you can rap the first tier from the top of Petit Arbor pitch 1 or walk off to the south.


Five bolts to anchors shared with Nick's Loose Flake Variation.

I TR this face about 5 years ago and thought it was a .10+ exiting to the right of the horizontal crack at the top anchor. Last Saturday 8-17-13, we were rapping down and saw this newly bolted route, still dusty from the drill. I led it without using the cracks on the face to make it a bit more challenging, including the overhanging opening moves right of the V notch start. That felt like .11a/b.
