Silver Slab

Silver Slab got 4 new routes 1 being a sport route.  When you first get the base of the main slab you will see one of the existing routes, just to the left of this lead climb is the 3  new ACMG put up climbs.  The first one is still unnamed and goes at 5.7, just to the left of that is the unnamed 5.8 lead. Just to left of that one is a another unnamed 5.9, this one is fun with the crux being getting up the bulge in the middle. To the left is one more new climb… but I’m not sure on rating or name.  And just in case you didn’t know (like I didn’t) If you follow the base of the wall to the left you will come across what was a anchor cleaning station (until some douche robbed one of the hangers!), and if you start just to the left of that there’s a sweet 2-pitch slab climb there called “Bonsai” witch rates somewhere in the 5.10+ range.

  2. -Head down towards the hotsprings... but turn left right before you get to them
    - follow takinni river road all the way to the very end
    - stay left go down the hill over the bridge (flat creek)
    - through the wash out (in good shape right now, can take a small car)
    - go past the pull-out for golden canyon (can see it up on the right)
    - take obvious turn left about 2 min past the out-house
    - cross the power line and park
    - you can see the cliff in behind the trees

    bring some bug spray and mosquito coils!

  3. It used to be called the Takhini Road Bluff for us old guys that used Rock'n Raven by Greg Keitel and Alan Pohl.

  4. Somewhat suspect all this information. There are quite a few routes here in the "hard" range which the author obviously knows nothing about.
