Traverse across the slab and tentatively climb towards the roof above. Use the broken roof's features to work your way up left and surmount the slab above, using a 2" cam to protect this move. Clip more bolts on your way to the chains at the top of the slab.


In the Manana area, route furthest right. Around the arete above Golden Labs.


7 bolts, a 2" cam

An underrated pitch, in my opinion. This is the bolt line visible from the top of Slot Machine. If you do that climb, hop on this.

the only noteworthy thing, on this otherwise bland pitch, is that it is really poorly bolted for a modern route. expect bolts really close together on easy trivial climbing, and a poorly protected crux section with really ugly fall potential.

I agree with Slim, one runout above the only place to bust your ankles. I'd assume it was bolted on lead by the nature of the bolting.

Also, tie a knot in your rope before lowering. It's a long pitch, you might need to lower off into the gully on the right if you don't have a 79m.
