Slab left of Laughing Crack?

Post by imnotnate » Fri Jun 17, 2011 9:46 pm

Anyone know what the really nice looking slab a handful of metres left of laughing crack is? Not sure how new it is, but it doesn't seem to be in the book or anything.

In the Mclane 1999 Guide there are two climbs on a tier above and to the left of Laughing Crack, Condo Bimbos11c and Yuppie I-O.8 (k. Langlett and D Parker)

Also, "there are to short cracks off the treed ledge above Laughing Crack. To reach them, climb the short corner above (10a) Kraft .7 is on the left and Dinner .7 on the right. (Jeff Thomson and

ya i saw those in the 2005 guide as well, but the pitch i'm describing is on the same tier as laughing crack, not above it.

the 2005 guide describes a route or two to the right of laughing crack, but not this slab to the left....

hmmm, lotsa +'s needed indeed. We tried this one evening and then climbed Whirlwind the next day. By comparison, Whirlwind was waaaay easier.
