Me leading up Father and Son 5.7

Description 

Stem and layback the obtuse dihedral to an awkward mantel onto the sloping ledge

Location 

When the approach trail nears the wall, bear left and scramble up a slipper slope to a talus ledge on the main corner.

Father and Son is the obtuse dihedral just left of the main corner.

Protection 

TCUs, smaller cams up to hand sized
Rappel anchors on the ledge

I know that John named this route at least in part due to having taken Miguel and Dario on it together, but I always wondered if there was connection to the Cat Stevens song by this title as well.

A fun climb with plenty of lay-back action. Primary pro were cams.

Great intro lead. Running it with just stoppers is fun too.

My first trad lead. Great placements and stances! Had plenty of passive placement opportunities.

I needed small cams to lead this. Fun climb that I wish was longer!
