Description:

from Slit, go two cracks right (so the dihedral just to the right of the "Jug Handle") to find Slat. Go up. A bomber (if less than encouraging) fist jam leads the way, although offwidth is possible too. Good, if flared, hands lead to the ledge, then go left up past an arching crack onto a spacious belay ledge.

Descent Options:

Downclimb the chimney thats in the direction of Harder Than Your Husband (and a rather large tree) from the belay ledge.

4 out of 5 stars first lead in vedauwoo

fun climb, although a bit vexing right off the ground. had to hang on gear to figure it out but eventually I did. also got drenched in the rain, but it was worth it. It protected very well.

4 out of 5 stars Good Stuff

I think that it starts in a funky/ackward way, but you can always take the walk-off from the other side and TR it if you're unsure. Short, but fun moves.
