BETA PHOTO: Oh Pinyon Crack, 5.9 (Outward Bound Slab, JTNP)

Description 

as one approaches OBS from the parking area, you will see a pine tree on the left side of the slab. scramble up to the tree which is at the base of the crack. this is a strenuous but short climb. I found it enjoyable. if it was longer, it would be a Josh classic.


Protection 

small nuts or cams

To expand on the protection, the start is well protected with a .75 cam. A #1 above and a #2 (a couple if you want to sew it up). Fun but wish it were much taller.

Really nice, but very, very short.
