The Great Northern Slab is where many climb their first time at Index. There are a lot of fun, moderate trad routes, mostly 2-3 pitches in length. When the sun is out, the routes are all in the sun.
The trail from the parking lot leads straight to the Great Northern Slab (i.e. don't turn left or right, just go straight).
