Description 

The West Slab runs up perfect granite on moderate, well-protected terrain. The climbing is fun, mostly straightforward, and has a crux from bolts 1 through 4. Gets good afternoon sun right up to sunset. WS gives a good photo vantage point of The Saxon Arete.


Location 

On the west face.


Protection 

Quickdraws only and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
