Located a couple hundred yards left of the Tuna and Chips wall The Slab is exactly as it sounds, a slab. There are multiple beginner sport routes here. Most can be top-roped without leading. The area gets decent shade in the afternoon and is a good finish to the Chips and Salsa wall.

Getting There 

Go left and down from the First Pullout parking lot. Visible on your right as you come up past the Tiger Stripe Wall you will see the wash/gully leading to Tuna and Chips Wall and in the foreground will be the Slab (framed by the the large cave in the top center of the wall and the water streak at far right).
