The testpiece on the Red Slab. Pink Slip starts about 15 feet to the left of the small ramp on the right side of the crag. The route shares an anchor with Slip and Slide and MK '74, making the top rope an easy proposition. Pink Slip actually converges with Slip and Slide at about the 50 foot mark. It enters common ground at the traverse on Slip and Slide. Thin and technical right off the ground, Pink Slip heads up on rather shallow rounded smears. The crux arises well before the convergence point and involves some ultra thin smearing hands and feet that trend to the right a short way. Unlike Slip and Slide, this is a very distinct crux, and it really seems rather improbable. Place a lot of trust in those feet. Two stars for excellent stone, continuity, and fine climbing.
QDs only. A 60 m rope does the job along with 8 - 9 draws.
