Working the crux moves of Return Engagement.


Two bulges after the midway point mark the crux - the second harder only because you'll be more pumped when you get to it.


Off the edge of the cove to the far right. Down climb to the belay or employ Aaron Stover's super swing method, which may well put a nearby tree branch up your heinny if you don't dial it just right.


Anchor the cedars at the top. Bring at least 50' of webbing. The climbers approach to the top of the cliff is found down near the regular people's trail, before you do the class 4 moves into the cove.
