Slippin' Sloan at the Surgery Buttress, Glenwood C...

Description 

Climb an initial, difficult crux before making fun movement on well-featured and hard, gray limestone. Much of the climbing is technical with an emphasis on footwork and body position. Not an easy 5.9 in most opinions.

Location 

This is the leftmost route on the Surgery Buttress, starting next to a pine tree at the base.

Protection 

7 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

I thought this was more thought provoking than the 9+ to the right. Great rock for the majority of the route.

I agree that it required quite a bit of deciphering, but no real hard moves.

This route now has a 2 bolt anchor courtesy of some ASCA hardware instead of the 1 bolt and 1 fixed nut that used to the anchor. Enjoy.
