Climbing Area Index / Crag Y / Righteous Slab (5.9)
Directions:  To the right of the California block is an attractive slab.
Description: This route began as an attempt on the obvious line of HOTEL CALIFORNIA. When their original goal seemed impractical, Jim Ongena and George Hurley instead climbed this line of least resistance.
    Pitch 1: Start as for CALIFORNIA DETOUR, but stay on the slab as it curves right. At its end is a comfortable belay ledge. 80', 5.9

    Pitch 2: Traverse horizontally to the next major dihedral left of the belay ledge. Follow it to the top. This dihedral is the next corner to the right of the HOTEL CALIFORNIA finish, and is directly above the start of CALIFORNIA DETOUR. 40', 5.7+

Gear: Standard Rack
Descent: rap the route
History:  July 23,1987 - George Hurley and Joe Hayes
