This short slab is actually really good for what it is. There are sizeable crimps the entire way up the middle of the slab leading to a thin, 5 foot finger crack to the base of Thindependence. In the Gillett guidebook, this slab has 5.9 and a dashed line drawn in under Thindependence.


Stem up about 25 feet to stand on a block to begin the slab climbing. Then, climb the middle of the slab on the leaning block directly under Thindependence and left of the direct start to Pear Buttress. As of now, the only way to climb this is to either solo it or TR it.


Solo or toprope it. There is no protection for this slab, though a few bolts would make it a fun alternative start for the routes in the Pear Buttress area.
