Featured Route For The Land of Slabs
The first time I saw this thing there was chalk on it and I wondered how is this even possible? Probly the hardest thing I've ever climbed yet to date.

Slim Jim V4 6B  CO : Morrison/Evergreen : ... : The Slab
This problem involves very intricate technical slab work, get the sequence right or flounder. I suggest if you want to climb this try when it's cold and your fresh and feeling strong perhaps. I have done it a handful of times one day 3 times in a row. I have been shut down far more often however, I was shut down the last 3 times I have gone to the slab.
