2016 Seasonal Raptor Closure between Laughing Man to V-3 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Starts on the face between Laurel and Rhododendron. Not much in the way of protection. Follow the right-facing flake. The crux is probably at about 40 feet. The fingers then get thin and slippery. I ended up just going to the chains on Laurel.

Location 

Between Laurel and Rhododendron.

Protection 

Standard rack, but the route is thin on gear.

I found it helpful to place a small cam as a TR directional about halfway between Laurel and Rhododendron. Either walk right from the chains of Laurel or down-climb to the ledge below the chains on Rhododendron.

Tricky start leads to very satisfying climbing with comparatively virgin rock. Protection is adequate after about ~10'. Mostly tiny and finger cams, but a larger piece is also useful. Some cruxy thin climbing above protection is very exciting, though the resulting fall doesn't seem dangerous (though longish).

The delicate steps leftward along the slopey ramp 10 ft up can be protected with a blue Ball Nut. First time I placed that piece on lead - woo hoo! A nice lead to test where my head is at (the upper crux is a bit committing).
