Description 

Wish your toes goodbye, Super techy credit card edge slab climbing! Very short, pretty much roped bouldering way above the ocean. Three different variations, left, right, and center, they all check in at in the 10+/11- range. Do all three back to back to get in 50-60ft of slab.

Location 

The orangey blank slab at the very top of the southeast face of wedding rock

Protection 

Wierd anchor, find the best shallow cracks you can. Looks pretty bad but fiddle around for a few minutes and you can find a number of bomber placements. Approximately 10ft downhill from the center of the slab, and 8ft back from the edge, there is a bomber .5 sized crack where I placed a couple solid cams and a nut, then directly above the slab I put in a couple bomber blue metolius/bd .3 to redirect the masterpoint to be over the routeline. longs slings are required

Short but super fun play-time. It looks stupid low angle, but the holds are so ridiculously thin that it makes it a real challenge. Climb all three variations and it makes it worth the [semi complicated] anchor set up. Better yet, use it as a finish to "Death By The Sea" 5.8!
