BETA PHOTO: Lone Pine Tree climbs.

Description 

This route is on the face furthest left on the east side of No Name Creek. It is down and to the left of the Pink Face. 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 it for a first 5.10 lead. Great afternoon sun exposure.


Protection 

Standard granite rack (it really eats up stoppers).

Got hailed off this yesterday and had to leave a bail nut and biner. Also while cleaning I could not for the life of me get a shallow RP out of the seam about where it turns tricky. Sorry about making this more of a sport climb :(

Someone go up there and grab those!

Super fun, I wussed out and tr'ed this one but wish to lead it next time. When the crack disappears, you gain great edges to keep it from getting to gnarly. Did I mention finger locking goodness?

Tried to onsight this today and had my ass handed to me. Fell on a small RP, hang dogged, ran it out, and thought I was gonna take the biggest whip of my life. Hard to place the gear on this one, humbled.

So, I got chased off the wall by wasps after placing one piece of gear. Went back after the sun went off the wall, and they were gone. So watch out for them in fall! Led the route after a few times top roping over the previous year. Placed lots of smaller cams and one big stopper. Felt a lot easier on lead then top roping for some reason...maybe a good day. Led it in twilight as the sun was going down in early november.

Yeah Jeremy, there are often wasps in that area which are quiet and relatively unseen when it is cold or shady, but when it's sunny and warm out they come out. Sometimes it can be a little adventure tiptoeing around the wasps when they are hanging out in the cracks on a chill day.

Fun. Slightly flared finger locks and a couple edges to help out. The wasps weren't too bad the other day, I only had to chase two out of the crack and they left me alone. I was able to sew it up excessively well with small cams and a couple tiny nuts. Which isn't a bad idea considering that you're kinda close to that ledge.
