Fun slab to start the route that could be a little spicy getting to the first bolt. The second and third bolts are old buttonheads that need replaced. The GM guide gives the face portion of the second pitch 5.9s but I think the 10- PG13 rating given here is on par. Great exposure on the second pitch!
