Climb easy slab past two bolts to a traverse right at the third bolt, which then leads back left via tenuous friction to the fourth bolt. Inobvious and balancy moves lead up and then right to an anchor shared with Hubbble.

Sustained and technical, this slab route is unlike most of the climbing on this wall and is best done on a cooler day.


Just left of Hubble is this technical slab up a dark, lichen-covered face.


6 bolts, bolted lower-off

I believe this is one of Holcomb's better lines, so long as you like slab. It is easier than the 12a grade in the guide book suggests.
