In 2005 a pair of UPS drivers from Salem got a bug up their butt about the Garden and scrubbed this easy slab for their wifes and kids. Longtime Courthouse climbers who were into setting and developing of outdoor spots they came out with Mtn bike high beam headlamps and everything short of flamethrowers and held all night cleaning and climbing sessions between work shifts.
A fixed line at the top of the Family Affair slab remained for a long time, but was unseen recently (2008-2010) and the slab has grown over.
If you want to climb any of the great highball difficult options climbers right of Francois, utilizing holds of Slopedon, Family Affair is a great option to set up a top-rope.
Full Baldo, an extension to Backside Baldo, a V2 to the climbers right of Family affair, links into the top part of Family Affair after its V2 crux.
