5 out of 5 stars seriously, hip.

The ticket for me was making sure to turn in my right hip when I get my toe on the black jib right above the first roof. If you are tall and try to pull it facing the wall straight on, it'll kick you off in a hurry. Turn that hip and you're golden.

4 out of 5 stars Fun Route

I've only climbed Slate a few times, and do it differently every time. The beginning crux can be as easy or hard as you make it. I usually make it hard on myself and muscle through with crappy technique, hahaha

2 out of 5 stars burly crux

I'm sure there is a better way, but the crux involves a partial one armed pull up (on the left hand pinch)? Pretty rough. Also, the route has its own chains now. Climb right out of the cave instead of left. Clipping the last bolt is scary.

3 out of 5 stars Fun Route

Be careful not to Z-clip on the 3rd bolt. Lots of fun.
