I've been getting into slab climbing and technique a lot recently and am looking for some of the best slab climbs...IN CALIFORNIA!?
Anyone know any websites or locations with some of the best slab climbs or just any good slab climbing in Califonia?

I hear there is a place called...To-all-you-me or something like that that is supposed to have some good slab climbs?

NOT CALIFORNIA, but if you ever head up to WA the best slabs in the US can be found at Darrington, and Static Point.

Granite walls and slab usually go hand in hand.. Yosemite certainly has some, Tuolumne, et cetera. But beware, these are most likely old school and super spicy.

Never met a slab that wasn't. At least in the northeast. Tuolomne can certainly stain the drawers.

Here's a few of my favorites in CA to get you started, but rest assured there's a lot more out there than this...

Hammer Dome
-also the right side slab on Calaveras Dome

Yosemite Valley
-Glacier Point Apron
-Royal Arches area
-North Dome
-Base of El Cap
-North Face Apron of MCR
-Cookie Sheet
-Parkline Slab

Tuolumne Meadows
-Stately Pleasure Dome
-Pywiak Dome
-Penny Royal Arches
-Bunny Slopes
-Daff Dome, South Flank
-Lembert Dome, West Face
-many other less-than-vertical face climbs exist, but they tend to be dominated by knobs

Mt Starr King

Tollhouse Rock

Courtright Reservoir
-Power Dome
-Penstemon Dome
-Dusy Dome
-Spring Dome
and more!

Dome Rock (near the Needles)

Whitney Portal
-The Beach
-Roadwork Wall
-El Gaucho
-Poolhall Wall
-Candlelight Buttress (knobby like Tuolumne, but stellar)

Suicide Rock (Idyllwild)
-also Tahquitz Rock

Joshua Tree
-Echo Rock
-Saddle Rocks
-South Astro Dome
countless others!


Edit to add photos which will hopefully work!?

EBGB's in Joshua Tree


Middle Cathedral Rock in Yosemite Valley


Courtright Reservoir
