Slab Management takes the vertical seam with horizontals just right of the black streak of Black Wave. Like other routes on this wall, the main crux is down low and a bit tricky. After solving this sequence, cruise up the moderate middle section to the upper bulging wall that is not quite as clean (nor quite as good) as the routes on the left.

Another worthy route that should be part of your Black Wave itinerary.


12-14 draws.

This was a pretty cool route! I felt like there were two crux sections about equal in difficulty: the moves past the 2nd bolt and the first part of the upper arete. The mid section was really easy.
Overall, fun slab climbing with technical footwork through the crux(s).
