More thin technical climbing by Matt Bruton.

Seasonal Raptor Closures January 1- July 31st MORE INFO >>>


Per Stewart Green: Thin technical edging up the middle of the slab.

Per Rich F: VERY difficult, near vertical, slab climbing at the bottom half. Could probably be top roped from the "Tourist" anchors.


Between the right and left starts for Heels over Heads.


To be filled in.

No hands. Smearing feet. That route was ridiculous! We both attempted and ended up backing off. We should have at least attempted a Toprope. Nice!

I lead this and thought it seemed easier than River Madness, the route to the left of it, but maybe I was just finally getting warmed up to climbing slabs, something I haven't climbed a lot of. After my day doing one slab route after the next, I'm appreciating the great climbing Eleven Mile Canyon has to offer, and I'm really enjoying slab's for the first time.
