The Alaskan Slab 12a - Owl's Cliff, Left Cliff
« on: March 31, 2011, 02:19:22 AM »
Somewhere here recently we were talking about slabs, so I wanted to point out a super good slab route we put up at Owl's Cliff a few years ago. I cleaned and bolted it up, but Dave Quinn managed the FA. I posted it up on MountainProject, so rather than repeating that now, here is a link to the description.

The picture makes it look lower angled , as looking up a slab usually does, and cuts off the bottom some.

Great route!  I flashed it (on a toprope) just after Mark bolted it.  Maybe closer to 12b....with great 5.11 pocket moves up above the crux.
