Tree slab is actually just a little slab near a tree. Several problems in the very low V range can be found along with slightly harder variations. Tree slab is a great place to warm down after getting pumped in the "Hole" or a nice shady spot in summer. In addition it is often a little quiter than the Lobby etc.

Getting There 

From the Lobby, proceed up the hill along the base of the cliff to the west. After scrambling up a low angle slabby rock, you will find yourself confronted with the slab and its tree.

Step high and reach a perfect 4-finger edge. It may be a slightly dynamic move for those of you who are shorties, unless you can lock off at your knees. From the edge, move your feet up and hi...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

Once in the early spring I was piddling around on the tree slab. I heard something and turned around to see two rattlers hanging out on a little boulder just behind me. It was too early in the morning for them to react to me, and they headed for cover in the cockpit. I had often heard of there being snakes in the cockpit, but until then I didn't believe the rumor.
