This is my favorite climb on the slabs.Start on the left side of a giant block that leans against the slab proper. make moves up the right facing dihedral to where it ends; here you can place RPs to protect a committing move left onto a sharp prow after which you can clip the first bolt. Next comes the polished slab (crux); working your way past the next two clips culminates in a high step which finishes the most difficult bit. But it's far from over as you've got very contiuous climbing involving high-steps, reaches, and mantles all the way to the anchors. After finshing this pitch, I feel like I have headaches in my feet. If I've got the story right, Jerry Rock (awesome name for a climber) hand drilled the first bolt from a free stance which must have been really frightening and really painful for his toes.
To the left of Classic Dihedral, find the leaning block against the wall and go to its left entrance. Here you will find the right-facing dihedral that is the start. Photo coming soon.
8-11 bolts (it's been a while), RPs and a mid-sized tcu for the first 10 feet.
