Lookout Slabs Overview

Lookout Slabs

Offering better climbing and larger than it looks, Lookout Slabs is a suntrap with a short approach and has an easy walk-off back down to the windy point parking lot. There is potential here for many 2-3 pitch climbs. Yes it can be slabby, but the rich texture and interesting formations and runnels make up for it. It is well worth a visit, for nothing else than the opportunity to 2 or three routes in one day.

Billy Goat Slabs

Billy Goat Slabs Overview

Approach:

Park at the Windy Point Parking lot. Head left (west) from the parking lot, next to the highway. Follow the highway until you see the Lookout Slabs on your right (trail is on the northside, at approx. 52.254333,-116.400385) cross the highway and look out for Red flagging tape heading up a grassy hill towards the slabs. 

Follow the flagging tape trending left and you will reach the base of the slabs. 15 minutes. Wet Like Willy is the first route directly in front of you as you are gearing up. Susan’s Pollution Solution starts left of Wet Like Willy and 5 meters up the hill. Billy Goat Slabs is in the center of the bluff and is a clearly defined white dome.

Decent:

It is recommended to rappel left or right to the second station of Silly Billy or Kili and then continue down. However, with rope stretch and a bit of planning the rappel can be made safely.
