Joel Longo leading the first pitch of Thin Slice. ...
First bolted line to the right of Chieu Hoi.
Pitch 1: The crux is getting to the first bolt (10+). Follow bolts up to a bolted belay.
Pitch 2: Move into a crack on the right and follow it up to a right leaning crack/seam (small nut placements). Follow this to another bolted anchor.
Pitch 3: Follow a couple bolts and cracks (two options: left 5.10, right 5.8) to the top and a bolted anchor.
Descent: Walk off the right side or rappel (can be done with one 70m in 3 raps).
This climb is continuous movement on small holds. Expect some space inbetween bolts and bring a couple smaller cams/nuts.
Right section, on the slab.
Bolts mostly. Expect them to be spaced 15-20 feet and making hard moves above them.

10 plus??? I'm not sure if this route goes at that grade, especially compared to other GM routes.

Was calling it 10+ because of Bill Cramer's topo. I agree, that is a bit too high of a grade for this route compared to other GM climbs.

The route used to be a very nice 5.9(R) back in 1980 before a crucial flake broke off on the starting move off the ground. I would concur with the 10+ rating now.
