Description:

Light colored fin with a wide crack system on the left side of a gully 28 feet left of reflector post #6. First bolt is quite a ways up there but the others are spaced well. The exposure is daunting, but the moves themselves are not hard, just committing.

4 out of 5 stars The Slab Route

Several times going back several years. A classic for noobs. Took Jonathan and Megan up this go around. Found a few new gems this trip as well.

5 out of 5 stars AKA Satan's Slab or Snake Slab

Was fun. first climb in MOAB for me. IT is really easy to mess up if you decide to go up right to late or go up left too early. Runout in the start is a bit tricky, but I followed so not to bad.

4 out of 5 stars Superfun

The runout to the first bolt can be negated by placing trad gear in the gully to the left of the slab and traversing right to the bolt.
