Salar* 8a
[Dan on Salar (8a), 3 kb]8m.

Rockfax Description
The groove bulge and wall give a very technical route. The first ascensionist managed somehow to move direct past the final bolt (at least 8a+) but most now go left. Supersedes Dapper Slapper, which used the same start, but then traversed off rightwards to Lapin. A good first 8a for boulderers, the tall and those who can jump. © ROCKFAX

Easier if you are the right hieght for either of the footholds to do the slap to the sloper. Amazing route with super cool boulder problem crux in the air!!! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KRCUZ9TrSks

Did all the moves on a top rope a few times and then had an RP attempt and fell off slap to sloper as I'd powered out. Will be back fresh to tick this one!
