From Cathedral Spires parking lot walk north on the road approx 150' to large slab boulder.

Route Description

This is a very run out climb but fun to warm up on before attempting one of it's larger friends up the hill

  • Start at the base of the slab, this trully is the crux of the climb is gaining access to the face.

  • there trully are no hand holds worth speaking of on here it's going to be all friction slab climbing. once youve gained access to the face trust your feet and go to the old bolt (old but stable)

  • continue up the slab and there is a second bolt, beyond that is run out but minimal chance of falling due to angle of the slab.... As stated this is a practice slab not a highly technical climb

  • top out and use natural anchors to Top Rope it or climb up and out of the wash and walk off the route.

I have used this climb to take my younger cousins to let them get they're feet off the ground for years. for technical climbers you will probably be dissapointed in it, but to the newbie it is a wonderful way to get an introduction to slab climbing (when top roped of course)
