Begin on the blasted rock at the base of the slab. Pop a small roof (5.8) and continue upward on easy terrain. A dike with large, quartz crystals provides the most obvious path. If you climb this, be extremely careful not to kick any rocks loose onto passing cars as this route is directly over the highway.


At the center of Red Lyin' Slab just past the road sign.


Very little to no protection is available. Also note that your belayer will be standing virtually in the road. Toprope it from above, solo it, or go somewhere else.
