|Upper Infirmary Slabs

A fun climb that is hard at the bottom and easy at the top. Well protected, the crux comes between the second and third bolts. Once past the piton, the angle and hence the difficulty of the climb eases up considerably. Good rock quality and fun moves for a steep slab.
On the same face as Panic in the Gray Room. This line takes the left side of the slab. Rappel from a 2-bolt anchor on the face near a weakly rooted, large tree.
It is easy to set a TR by climbing the crack route just to the left.
7 bolts and a piton.

This is a great SSV slab route that was very thoughtfully bolted. It felt a bit harder than Panic in the Grey room, but a similar style of climbing - delicate footwork and nickle & dime edges for hand "holds". You can lead this to set TR on Panic if you're chicken like me about taking a fall off the beginning of Panic.
