Climb the slab on good holds to the smeary crux at the top. Good for a new leader. Pretty good rock.


This is the first or second route on your left when heading DOWN the walkdown. Look for the slab with five bolts, ending below the steeper white section.


5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor. Rap or lower.

I believe this route to be a bit harder than 5.7 in todays route difficulty terms. Yes, old school rating of 5.7 would be right on, but today the top couple moves is considered more of a 5.8 or so. This is due to the nature of the smears and the beginner should know what is up before climbing the route.

Slow, Children Playing is a great warmup climb for 5.9 - 5.10 lead climbers.
