The difficulty of this route varies according to the route taken. Climbing to the left of the bolt line and using the left-hand arete makes for about a 5.7 climb, while climbing straight up or to the right of the bolt line makes for about a 5.9 climb. At least one small or medium size cam can be placed in a horizontal crack about halfway up this route.


This route is the left-hand of the two short routes located on the right-hand side of Slabosaurus, and may be accessed by climbing up a crack below a large dead pine tree to gain a ledge that overlooks the two longer climbs on the left-hand side of Slabosaurus, or by going around the back side of ledge and scrambling up.


4 bolts and 2 twist anchors at top.
