The Slab is a boulder a bit out of the way from the rest of the upper boulder field, however it still houses a couple of classic, committing, somewhat sandbagged problems. While very fun and exciting, some of the top outs are a bit dicey, and may not be the best for someone breaking into the grade.
There are two approaches to the Slab.
1. From Around The World, follow a trail east that works it's way gradually downhill under the Platform a little ways until it starts to turn south and meets up with the Taylor's Canyon trail. The Slab is essentially where these trails meet.
2. A more direct approach is to stay on the Taylor's Canyon trail instead of going into the upper field the standerd way past Castle Rock. Once you get into the trees, keep an eye out on the left for a small trail and the boulder.
Stand start on the right side of the south face on a good right hand crimp and slopey left hand sidepull. Work up the feature, and move left to a committing top out. A great climb, and solid at the grade....[more]Browse More Classics in UT
