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.

4 out of 5 stars Fun 1st pitch, wild 3rd pitch

First pitch has some good moves, but the 3rd is the money pitch. Easy to climb, pumpy to place gear or clip the pins.

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
