Prime the Pump

Prime the Pump (5.12c); FA: Matt Samet ,Greg Belinski, 2012: This is the leftmost route on the “Undertow” headwall, the big overhang on the west face of the Slab. Can be done in two pitches, or one pitch with a 60m rope—long slings and some unclipping as you go are helpful. The first pitch is 5.11+ with six bolts, and the second pitch is 5.12c with seven bolts. Each pitch has its own anchor. The first pitch begins on a low arete right on the approach trail along the west face of the Slab; the second pitch rails right along a big flake feature to a black streak to finish.
