  • Description 

    Start to the right of a big rounded arete on top of a 5' apron. The flake/crack and a few of the bolts can be seen from the base. A flake/crack leads to slab (bolted crux) with small edges and slopers. Two ropes to rap.


    East face, left of Rip Van Winkle.


    Mixed, standard N.C. rack and 4 bolts.

    If you like 5.8 slab, this is a must do. Thought it was pretty accurate on the grade. The bolts were well spaced when the climbing was difficult. This will get your heart pumping and is a classic for the East Face.

    Runout? Certainly. Nothing dangerous, just painful if you fall. So don't.
    Classic tenuous slab climbing, if you're into that kind of thing.

    Slab and quality slab at that! Well protected as far as that type of thing goes so don't let the reputation spook ya! You can link up with the tree ledge and continue onto some other great stuff or just do it as a single pitch! Good Stuff through and through!!

    Maybe my favorite single pitch climb on the east face. Feels like two climbs; the first 60 feet of flakes take great pro, while the last 65 feet or so climb amazing 5.8 Table Rock slab. You can bring a 0 C3 (green) or the smallest offset (both textbook placements) to plug on the mild runout from the 3rd to 4th bolt. All around a fantastic climb with great position. A must do Table Rock route.
