<< Undercracker < Slip It In Quick | Soft Touch > Lost Horizon >>
A memorable and adventurous tour of the main section of Long Rock Slab. Although protection is sound, the runouts are thought-provoking. Start 3m right of the shallow pillar of Undercracker at a very thin crack.
Take the thin crack to a larger left-leaning crack that leads to the pillar. Gain a small ledge on the top right side of the pillar and move up left to a good break. Step left and up to a good vegetated horizontal break (as for Slip it in Quick) and traverse right to a peg. Climb up flakes to a horizontal break and then pursue a bold line rightwards up positive finger flakes to another vegetated horizontal break. Move right to a thin crack just right of a very slight corner and take this to finish with good gear.
