Description:

One of the few top-rope areas in the Garden, and therefore, sees many newer climbers. Begin by making an exposed free climb up easy rock on the far right side of the slab to set up a top-rope on the summit anchors. You can climb anywere on the face on this top-rope and it offers a great place to practice your slab footwork. Lines on the face range from 5.4, on the easiest side (left)-5.8, on the steeper section (right).

3 out of 5 stars Practice Slab

good place for beginners. Can make up whatever router you want. There are no big holds, so you have to make use of the smaller ones which is why I think it's good for beginners.
