Description 

Multi-pitch climbing at T-Wall! Beautiful rock and nice exposure.

P2 -- follow the long dihedral to a belay ledge. 60'.

P3 -- continue up the corner to the top. 50'.


Location 

Starts about 20' left of Wrectum Wrecker.


Protection 

Full rack (cams, tricams, nuts). Gear anchors at belays.

This goes very easily in two pitches and can even be done in one.

Often wet in winter/spring...

Classic corner though.

Watch the rap on this one....The only tree left with slings, etc is to the right of the route. Below this rap tree there are numerous rope eating flakes and funky twisted rope eating pine tree branches. We donated two biners to make the pull easier on the slings and quick links.
