This is the low angle crack/slab on the west face of South Rock. It follows a discontinuous crack system to a final runout slab. There are a few bolts but they're next to good gear placements. It can be split into two pitches to cut down on rope drag.

Descent Options:

Rappel Surface Tension.

3 out of 5 stars Slabby

Just another runout slab. It's a fun route but not as classic as some of the other routes of the grade. Pro isn't bad till the final slab which is the crux and puts you a little ways above your last gear.
