About The Slab:

Also called the south face. This broad slab is the first piece of tock greeting climbers driving north to poke-o. It stands about 500' and is dominated by a frowning overlap.The more difficult routes climb the steeper slab below this. The moderate climbs such as Catharsis take rising left to right lines to the left. The climbing here isnt true friction, most of the rock is too steep for that.The rock has weathered to form tiny pockets and edges, though these may seem insuffient to the climber 50' out from thier last protection. Like most slab areas, the routes here are only fairly protected, but in most cases, it's the exposure and the runout that complete the appeal of the fine individual moves.
