Before and after of this project's efforts at the base of The Slot 5.7. Tiers were added to eliminate sloping mud that prevented comfortable seating and pack stowage, which was causing climbers to expand out into the surrounding bushes. Now the starting area for Zig-Zag and Center Slab Left has a flat platform, the next tier down is flat as well, and there is a water runoff channel to help direct erosion away from traffic areas. The grass and plants removed from the base area were moved to one of the sloping muddy areas that shouldn't see traffic anymore.
