Description:

(from the Falcon Guide) *** Forty feet east of "Ross's..." is a very clean, low angle slab. This slab has four separate routes, although they tend to blur together. From the tree below, you can swing into and up the inside corner (5.7); hip-hop up the thin crack a few feet right of the corner (5.8); samba up the face between the crack and the arete (5.10b/c); or tango up the right edge (5.10d)

4 out of 5 stars sick slab

some crazy slab, if you do it for sure do the 5.10 parts. Its amazing how little holds are on a slab.

None of this is leadable.
