13. Rusty 5.7+
On the slabs adjacent to the rust-colored east face of the Friction Slab block. Move onto the east
face of Friction Slab block and reach a small stance on a narrow, sloping ramp.
Straight up the shallow blast hole line via a large, but loose hold halfway up the face.
*Great climbing with
a bad landing.
A few feet right of Rusty, where two narrow, sloping ramps intersect at the lowest point just above the water.
Go: Up and ever so slightly left as you climb toward the apex of
the Friction Slab block.
*An excellent, sustained route.
Friction Slab 5.0 - 5.4
At the base of the Friction Slab block that juts out from Vista Rock immediately south of the Main Wall.
Go: Friction climb any part of the slab. The left
side is exposed, but has the edge of the block to use and some bigger foot holds. The right side has the
big overhanging corner to use in case friction is not enough (though awkward). The middle part of the slab
is the hardest.
*Extremely fun. Sticky rubber makes some of the climbing far too easy. Though
be careful of the polished, slick bits.
Belvedere Boulder Problem V0+
At the left or right side of short, east-facing wall at the top of the Friction Slab block and just below castle gazebo.
Go: Traverse left or right without
using top of wall.
