BETA PHOTO: Willard Slab Right

Description 

This large, low angle slab has been compared to Willey's Slide. The bulge in the middle may approach WI3. Depending on the conditions, it can reach almost to the RR tracks.

Location 

This is the largest slab on the east side of Mt. Willard and can easily be seen from the road (but not the RR tracks). Look for a boot trail about 200 yds past the trestle. There probably won't be one so you'll have to create your own. I'm guessing it's about 300 yards before the Hitchcock trail. Can someone please provide a landmark?

Protection 

Because of the low angle, expect some snow cover and the need to poke about for solid ice for screws. Rappel off trees at top and sides to descend. You can also traverse left to the start of The Cleft or other upper tier routes.
