BETA PHOTO: The first half of Out in the Country,

Description 

Step off a huge boulder onto the face under a small roof. Once established move right and then up through stacked roofs. Pull over the left side of the last of three small stacked roofs via great holds and a high step. Face climb up to a large ledge to finish, 60'.

The next pitch is the second pitch of the Chimney Route (5.7), 90'. Awkward start to climb past a manky piton and into the "chimney." Follow this feature up to another large ledge where you join Mescaline Daydream. From here continue up to the bolted anchor for Flying Frog to rap or finish to the rim of the gorge.


Location 

Once at the base of the face/ledge that is the start for Flying Frog, Mescaline Daydream, etc., walk to the climbers left until you locate a large boulder close to the wall. Scramble up to the top, you step off the peak of this boulder onto the face.


Protection 

Standard Tallulah rack.

First Ascent October 1976 by me and Tim Snipes. I led the first pitch, Snipes led the second, both on sight, pre-camming devices. We thought it was 5.8 at the time, which says a lot about the standards of that day.

I named it "Into the Country" after the John McPhee book that had just been published, but the guidebook got it slightly wrong.

Thanks for including it and these other fine routes in Tallulah.
