Approach

The Slab is a small bushy pullout right before one of the largest pullouts on Wall Street 4.9 miles from Hwy 191 on Utah 279 (Potash Road). It is kind of a large tongue to the left of a large gulley, canyon type break in Wall Street.

Route Description

This is kind of a slabby friction climb up a fin of sandstone. Start out left side and come out onto a well bolted face and head for the anchors. I used no gear on the route. It is a 65’ rappel. I found this friction route much easier than similarly rated crack climbing on Wall Street.

Essential Gear

60 meter Rope. Climbing shoes and harness. Sandstone colored chalk, etc.
