Lackin' Slacks with the first piece of gear in the...

  • Description 

    Begin in honeycombed rock about 8 feet left of Power Bulge below a steep, left-facing corner. Climb up through the corner to gain the right-angling crack feature that splits Power Bulge and Back in Slacks, and climb this with decent gear to its end. Flip around the corner and finish up the slab just right of Back in Slacks to its two-bolt anchor.

    I led this route on trad gear only but – for better or worse – it's easy to clip the second bolt of Power Bulge and the second and final bolts of Back in Slacks, if you're so inclined. It's still a bit spicy at the beginning and near the end, but with the bolts it may not warrant an R rating.

    Several long slings.
