Use one of the main starts (start #4 is a classic aka Cal's Ceiling) move to the right side of the start ledge. Climb the left side of the flake to its top, standing on the top of the flake is airy and exposed, enjoy! From the top of the flake (crux, try left hand in left side crack and right hand on right outside corner, squeeze hold you will love it!) continue face climbing up and to the left to the top of the Calvinís Slabs. Note: This is a classic line of Calvinís Slabs sporting great exposure and only moderate difficulty. It is one of the best routes, for its grade, at White Rocks.

Descent Options:

The best descent from Calvinís Slabs is a slightly awkward traverse (north) over a pine needle covered gully to the top of Pillar #2 and using the rappel rings and chain or descending down the Down Climb route See the descent routes for Pillar #2.
