BETA PHOTO: RW looks at the traverse from the Groov'n anchor t...


START- On the left edge of the slab, about 50 ft above the "toe", by a 5-inch diameter (2016) maple tree*.

[ * The easiest way to reach this spot may be as we did it: From the Groov'in anchor, climb left 20-25 ft (5.4 +/-?) to the Erosion Groove anchor and rap down to the START.]

Climb 5.2 slab 30-40 ft to a headwall with one, lonely bolt. [This bolt is about 20-25 ft left of the corner of "Little Dab Will Do Ya" and its bolts.]

"Climb the headwall left of the bolt...5.9" [per Handran's guidebook] or...

Alternate - climb about 8-10 ft right of the bolt on (brushed, 2016) footholds and a thin flake at the top. About 5.8+ to 5.9
Move up right a few feet to the Erosion Groove double bolt anchor.


Furthest left climb on the Main Slab.


The original line has only the one bolt. Not that old (2004) but it's a "once zinc-plated" bolt now gone rusted.

The Alternate currently has no protection.

May be TR'd from the Erosion Groove anchor, but the swing would be bad, right into the "little Dab" corner.
