Concrete Jungle

Ferga-Slab 

Follow the line of bolts up a beautiful patina face. At the huge diagonal crack it's back to classic Fergy, with a very thin flaring crack to the right and small nothings to the left, and plenty of room for air if you flail. One word: CLASSIC!


Protection 

6 bolts plus anchors

We should probably petition mp.com for the addition of a 5th star specifically for this route. Seems like it would get at least 8 or 9 in some other areas of the Wasatch.
Great patina edges down low and an intriguing lieback crack with the occasional face hold up high when the wall gets steeper.
The route doesn't relent until you've clipped the chains.
Long and well protected for Fergy with an approach as classic as the climbing itself :)

Superb. Brilliant. Other synonyms for awesome. Well protected climbing with face, lieback crack, insecure vertical pocket jams, sharp crimpy patina, and a few jugs. Crux comes right at the top, so save some juice. Not sure about 5 stars Boissal, but certainly a solid 4.

It's like a slice of City of Rocks pie. So good! Boissal said it right, needs 14 stars. If you gave it 2 stars, you're doing it wrong.

Old grey whistle test, some of the best live stuff ever.
