Colin working the trad section of Ethics, 5.8.


Crux would be the slick 'seemingly' featureless area between the 2nd & 3rd bolts. The holds are big but the protection is difficult to find. This is a great route if you're on the ledge and not interested in .10's, .11's or .12's


Closest route to the South edge of the detached leaning flake on the Tree Crack Wall.


3 bolts and then trad protection the rest the way up (hence the name). Standard free rack and TCU's.

super fun 5.8 with interesting pro... great intro to the schoolroom for beginners and a fun warm up... the final section is thrilling and exposed
