Vince, on the aptly named route.


climb face using pockets to slot then big move to the top. Holds are good you just don't want to fall. Tree behind you but landing is OK.


behind Get the Hell Outa Dodge. Large tree in corner.


Pads and a few good spotters.

We cleaned this off alot last week. Pretty good route! Vince did it thinking it might have been the FA just cause it was so dirty and named it "Between a Tree and a Hard Place" (Notice use of capitalization, Dobbe). Only later while browsing MP did we see Dobbe had the same thought process. Excellent. Try not to back smack the tree.

"Call Girl" is the arete to the right of this.
