Description:

The left variation to Lower Slot. Follow a very flared crack (with basically no protection) to a large horizontal crack. Pass this horizontal and follow the crack to the next big horizontal. Crux is either passing the first horizontal, or the short fists section before the second horizontal. Belay in the second horizontal.

Descent Options:

Either walk off (climber's right) or continue on via Upper Slot.

3 out of 5 stars easier than expected

Having memories of the last time I tried to TR this thing, I expected more of a struggle. Once past the first fifteen feet or so, its good jams the whole way. Need to check my cam cables on a regular basis but otherwise not too bad.
