BETA PHOTO: Plant Meets Pillar

Description 

Climb up the same right facing corner for Pullatrain to the small ledge. Climb the face and thin crack up and to the right of the Pullatrain corner past a small bulge to a stance below a flare. Climb this to the anchors. Fun route which would have been more fun if not for some suspect rock.

Location 

Between Pullatrain and Vancelot.

Protection 

Variety of gear including nuts. Two metolius hangers for anchors.

Named for large pillar I grabbed with both hands that pulled out, but I managed to man-handle into the fall line. It was large enough to do serious damage to the large plant at the base, hence the name.
