Comments: One of these routes had a loose anchor bolt when I climbed it. I think it was this one. Loose stud. Did you notice, Leo?

Comments: Someone must have loved this boulder!?!? In the beginning of September, it became their final resting place as their ashes where scattered around on the ledge above the slab. Bits of bone continue to trickle down on the holds....
Just a heads up if that sort of thing makes you squeamish.
Anyway, rest in peace my fellow Tree Slab aficionado, whoever you were.

Comments: This route doesn't look like much from a distance, but it packs a lot of cool climbing with wild position into a short distance. The gear is pretty bad, if you blow it on the arete you will probably deck. It wouldn't be as scary if it was brushed a little.... Even clean, it would still be scary and awesome!

Comments: It seems like the start of this route is part of an ancient line… If you follow the natural weakness up and right of the bolt line, I ran across this relic. An old Lost Arrow with a Bedayn California oval.
Old pin.

Comments: With a 70m, you can climb the whole thing as one pitch and lower back to the mid-anchor so your partner can lead the 2nd pitch too....

Comments: 3 of the bolts are next to perfect gear placements!?!?
The climb to the left has shitty gear and no bolts.

Comments: Maybe you are crazy? It's to the left (west/upstream). I don't remember exactly how far, but 150 yards sounds good. Just walk left and you can't miss it.

Comments: The first bolt seems useless and I never saw the 5th...
The slab is low angled, but dirty, featureless and exfoliating. The runout after the last bolt is the psychological crux of the route. If it were only a couple degrees mellower, you'd be walking. But it was actually a little scary. The pitch 2 corner is great fun, but too short.

Comments: Yes. You can rap from the top of pitch 2 with one 60m rope and once more to the ground....

Comments: I thought the routes here were fun but very short. The approach is one of the worst I have seen in Boulder Canyon. Very loose. Don't park right under the crag or you might crush your car!
Super loose....

Comments: This is a great climb... thin and sustained on good rock. It is slightly contrived, since you could stem, but it has very fun moves if you don't....

I heard that you nearly decked from the top of this wall. True story? Sounds like a good one...

Comments: Crux is at the 5th bolt. It's by far the hardest move on the route. Then a good clipping hold and another pretty hard (while pumped) move....

Did anyone leave a draw on the last bolt? I have it. Describe and I'll return it to you....

Comments: This is a fun boulder! If I lived in North Boulder, I'd climb here a bunch....
Besides the listed problems, there are tons of possible variations. There are so many interesting holds you could do most of the problems a few different ways (the easiest possible ways were hard enough for me). A nice easy right to left lip traverse is a good V0 warm-up.
I'm surprised this boulder hasn't seen more attention. It's sunny, scenic, and close to town with flat landings and mostly solid rock.
