The Sun Slabs are also known as the east face of the Pinnacle. Scramble down and to the east from the base of Corrugation Corner, at the extreme left hand end of the north face of the pinnacle. Locate a small, dirty looking pool. This pool actually has Goldfish living in it and serves as the base of all the routes on the Sun Slabs. The wall has mostly sport climbs with one trad route thrown in for good measure. It gets morning sun and afternoon shade.
Follow directions as for the Pinnacle. The best parking spot is located just up the road from the Graduation Boulder on the right side of the road. Follow a bridge across the creek and head uphill beneath the north face of the Pinnacle. At the extreme end of the Pinnacle, scramble down and to the east reaching a small, dirty looking pool with Goldfish in it.
