An amazing slab, the creme de le creme of slabs. Slabariffic. Alright, enough of that. Intensive Care is a south facing slab located high in the gully between the ?Church Buttress? and The Fin. It is impeccable granite with a spattering of features, with the odd crack thrown in. The angle of the slab lends itself to 10-11 slabwork. Well worth the trip in its own right or, after descending from The Fin rappel, do a route or three.

Getting There 

Park as for The Fin or Altered States and take the trail up and west through the Altered States Gully. Drop down in and descend the gully and don't exit the gully too early. After exiting the gully follow the trail, or if you missed it, skirt the base of the Lizard Head Wall and the Fin Buttress, until you reach a flat, gravelly spot with a slab above you. This is where the original CDFT route starts. Climb this adventure route to the slab or continue west around the corner and go up and in, staying to the west of the gully. Approach from the west of the slab.

Slab supreme.Starting on a left-trending shelf, angle up this and clip the first bolt. Slab up some thin moves to chickenheads and another bolt. Attain a very cool dike feature, that trends steeply right. Climb this dike clipping the remainder of the bolts until you have to step left off of the dike to get to the anchors. Very exciting moves off of the dike. Extremely fun moves up it.The second pitch (5.11b) moves right off the anchors and with some up/down movement will clip the two bolts aimi...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
