This crack/seam is the right most of the Lone Pine Tree cracks. It is approached from the ledge off of the climber's trail on the east side of No Name Creek. This route is generally toproped by the same anchors as Lone Pine Tree Left and Direct. A thin crack/seam provides tenous holds and minimal gear. A few RP placements may be worked out. Ballsy lead/ solo, if your up for it!
Not much; maybe some tiny swedges and RPs.

Great climb and it's not that bad of a lead. Probably PG-13, maybe R (I'll conservatively call it R). This thing actually sews up pretty well with cams, particularly a few key offsets. The crux is a little tricky to protect and that's where this could get R-ish. I think you could probably protect it even better with small nuts if you're savvy with those things. I was lazy and relied on cams but wasn't too worried although it's heady for sure.
