bottom two bolts were moved to the right to accomodate easier terrain that way. i plan on cleaning up the lichen real soon up to that point. the rest of the slab is already cleaned.

Definitely clip the first bolt, it's high and the first two bolts are the most technical. The first two bolts are also a blast. At some point I made about three moves to gain three feet in altitude. If you like slab it's a must.

I was so close to an onsite on this puppy and one wrong bump move crushed me. Awesome route and pretty stout.
