Description:

(5.7+) This is a Dangler-esque traverse out to the nose right of the normal third pitch of Thin Slabs. Go up on top of the loose blocks in the corner, step right and up a corner to its top, then hand traverse out along a horizontal below one of tiers in the gigantic roof. Move around the nose, then up to the top.

5 out of 5 stars Great climb, great 3rd pitch

Had a hard time getting started, it was my first climb of the day. Once started, I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable climb. Every pitch was fun.I

5 out of 5 stars PG for sure

There is now way that the traverse is G. The pin that protect it are a joke. However, great route! Wouldn't reccomend it for a 5.7 leader though.
