Description 

Renaissance Slab is a fairly plain looking slab of rock, located below and left (slightly southwest) of the mighty Sunshine Dome.

I would venture to say that most of the routes on this piece of rock see very little traffic. If you are doing a route on this rock, and don't plan on taking it to the top and walking off, you might want to be prepared to leave your own anchor. Most people will find this rock to not be worth the time, however, those who don't mind a slightly involved approach to mediocre routes will probably enjoy themselves. Most likely, those who do a route here are just doing it as a direct start to get up to the base of Sushine Dome.


Getting There 

Please see the approach details for "Sunshine Dome". Renaissance Slab is the broad slab below and left (south west) of Sunshine Dome.

When looking at the Renaissance Slab, at approximately the center of the slab there is a very large, 3' thick flake that rests against the slab. The UMC Route climbs a nice crack a couple feet right of the left hand edge of the flake.p1 (5.6, 100') Scramble up to the flake from the lower left hand side. Pull around to the right and climb the low angled crack via jamming, face climbing, and strange laybacking. Sling the top of the flake with a double length runner or your rope for the belay.p2...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
