Set up top rope from the two pitons on the ledge at the center of the top of the Great Bowl. Rap down, with belayer staying at the anchor. Climb up the center of the slab following the line of indentations where water runs down.

It's a clean slab with pleasant feel to it and just enough texture for easy and interesting climbing. Great for that windy day when going high up on the slabs is almost too much fun.


Anchors located at the top of the layback pitch on the route up the right side of the Great Bowl.


Two rather widely spaced pitons which should be backed up. Only one is visible from the crack leading up to the ledge they are at the back of.
