Good climb. Don't recommend for new leader onsight...
The East Side of No Name has several great, popular climbing areas with some of the most classic climbs in No Name.
This area is split into subareas: Beginner Slab, Bridge, Gray Face, Lone Pine Tree, and Pink Face areas.
Some of us have been doing a bunch of climbing up there, cleaning stuff up, fixing up old anchors, and adding some new lines. It's a bit of a Renaissance.
The East Side contains climbs that are accessed by hiking up the road that forms the start of the Jess Weaver Trail. All of the east side climbs are on the right side of the road.

It is the direct line up to a lone pine tree anchor (hence the inventive name) which is reached by an easy fifth class move off of the trail up to a spacious belay ledge. The splitter line straight up from the ledge has some great thin hand crack moves. Some insecure thin hands can make this route a challenge for gear placement; I wouldn't recommend ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
