This is the larger, left hand slab at the Pet Slabs. It contains several fun friction routes. The left side is very moderate and lower angle, but the right side is quite steep. Having been protected under a layer of thick moss, the rock here is mostly lichen-free and amazingly grippy leading to excellent friction, which is good considering the noticeable absence of holds. Because of the blankness of the rock, actual lines are difficult to follow. Routes listed are mere suggestions.
Most of the routes can be top-roped from a small tree right at the top of the slab. If it seems this slab is getting use, I'll add anchors.
This is the first slab visible from the clearing with the fire ring as you approach the Pet Slabs from Redrock main area.

This is a fun, pure friction climb at a moderate grade. It starts just right of the crescent-shaped flake. Smear upwards toward the belay tree. Trending left into Turkish Delight will make it easier, and trending left into Grinch Breath will make it harder (so try to stay in the middle!). The first half is the crux, after that the angle eases off. ...[more] Browse More Classics in Massachusetts
