Gettin' ready for the Valley
The Red Pulpit sits slighty to the left of the oak tree that sits near the southeast half of the Balanced Rock Wall. You can identify the route by finding the "pulpit" sticking out the of the rock about 15 feet up. Start out just to the left of the pulpit on a very thin crack (the crux is getting off the ground). Climb up the crack and pass the pulpit on your right. Stand on the pulpit for a rest, then continue up the crack to the top.

I would not recommend this route to the beginning leader despite the grade. The lower takes a very small cam and then there is little to no good pro until you're on top of the pulpit. From there the route takes great stoppers.

Between the crux and the pulpit, where the climbing is easy, a tiny cam and/or a micro-nut provide some pro. Above the pulpit the gear is bomber.

An easy top-rope climb, but as others have said the pro is limited (at best) below the pulpit. Once standing on the pulpit, beware of our stinging friends in a crack to the right. It was pretty cold when we were there a few weeks back, but they were starting to come out anyway.
