The West Slabs

A major classic that towers out of the Salt Lake Valley are the West Slabs of Mount Olympus. The climbing is of an easy grade but really long as in 10-12 pitches of roped climbing and 1660 feet of quartzite climbing.  I suggested the route to a new friend who had never done a multi-pitch climb.  There is no better introduction to long climbing than the longest route on the Wasatch Front.
