Description 

Get ready for some finger-lockin' fun!! The Slot climbs the thin crack with the distinctive pod about 2/3 up and joins the last 10 feet of They Died Laughing.

Although it is a little stout in the grade, it is, nonetheless, a good test of finger fortitude!


Location 

The thin crack to the left of They Died Laughing.


Protection 

A #2 Camalot at the beginning, then mostly small Stoppers, Camalots/Aliens, and a couple .75 Camalots for the traverse crack into They Died.

This is a fun route if you like thin fingers cracks....there is a direct finish possible using crimpers and slopers going directly up from about halfway through the traverse crack...more often top roped, but it's a fun lead though a little heady maybe...it makes the line a little more independent....

A thrilling onsight for me last fall. Plugging in a couple of really thin pieces and punching it through the crux was awesome. I thought it was accurately rated.

one of the best 5.10 thin cracks in the cliff.

First climbed this (and sent clean) 20 years ago when I was 13! No way my fingers would fit in this now!
