Bring Out Your Dead

A somewhat powerful, in-your-face trad route of short stature. This line was done by someone a long time ago, I'm sure. A bit sporty to the first placement, but a good spot makes things palatable. After the mantle, things ease considerably. You can head up and left in to the hand-crack (I'm assuming this is how the route was originally led?) or you can go straight up the gently overhanging face via great edges (5.9ish), passing one bolt. The crack is typically quite dirty and contains suspect rock.
Just to the left of Trebuchet.
Takes finger-sized pieces, and one quickdraw/sling. There's no real pro below the crack. I bring a .5 Camalot. After mantling the bulge, head straight up the face, passing one bolt.

A decent warmup for the harder stuff. Has very interestingly featured and coarse rock.

I'd give it PG-13 on the safety rating. Bouldery crux start over an uneven, root-filled landing leads to a stance 10 feet up where you can place a .5 camalot. Better yet, place two pieces. This is SB sandstone..
