George starts on the fun, shallow dihedral.

Description 

This is a good route that has some fun features to ascend. It is the 3rd route from the left on the right side of West Slabs. It starts in a small, right-facing dihedral.

Move up into the dihedral. A small cam (yellow Alien or TCU size) works before the 1st bolt. Move out left under a cool, shallow dihedral somewhat reminiscent of something Yosemite-like clipping 2 bolts & a Bugaboo pin. Pull past a tiny bulge onto a slab that actually has real glacier polish reminiscent of Tuolumne. This slab can run with water. Climb past 4 bolts onto easier terrain. Clip one more bolt and gain the ledge with a 2 bolt anchor with rappable hangers.

There is another 2 bolt anchor perhaps 70' above.


Location 

This is the 3rd route from the left on the right side of West Slabs. It starts in a small, right-facing dihedral just above a raspberry patch.


Protection 

7 bolts, 1 pin, 1 yellow Alien/TCU.
