Description:

Friction slab that becomes progressively lower angled.

Descent Options:

One rope rap with 70 m will just get back onto ground (about 10' too short if toproping through the draws). Or via two ropes rap. Or walk off to climber's left (to the north), switchbacking down the series of slabby ledges.

4 out of 5 stars 4 bolts in 140 feet

Welcome to JTree slab climbing. While the climbing is easy, the head has to be in prime shape to run it out 40+ feet to the chains. Can be TR'd with a 70

4 out of 5 stars Slabness

A few fun moves along the way. Otherwise an easy classic slab climb.
