5.9+ 3 bolt slab. Lots of fun balancy wall with plenty of crimps.

5.9+ 3 bolt slab. About 65ft.

To get there you will start on the Tom's Thumb Trail for about .1 mi. Then take the Mesquite canyon trail left (SE) for .2mi. It will connect with the Feldspar trail. Turn left (E) and continue on until you see the climber access sign. Continue on the well marked trail towards the Girlie Man climbing area. Once you get to the base of the climbing area, you will see a large slab with a finger crack running up the right side of it. This is where you will need to scramble up to. The start of the climb will be 5 feet to the left of the crack.

It can be lead, or set up as a top rope. The moves to the first bolt are closer to a 5.10b than a 5.9. It is a lot of fun with some crimpy side pulls. Not much for feet on this slab. 

Enjoy the climb! Please remember to use the leave no trace principles while climbing here! 

Bring plenty of water, as there is nowhere to fill up your water bottles near by.
