On 5/15/12 I added 2 Slings with 2 Rap rings to the Pine tree in the gully. I had noticed a bit of wear around the tree from repetitive rope-pullings..

Better to walk off to the west from the top anchors. Rapping to the tree takes you over a bees nest in a flake and isn't that great for the tree. It also takes a lot longer than the very easy walk off down the slabs on the west flank. Jun 2, 2012

FYI - was swarmed by wasps when climbing on wave rock on 5/31/2014. They're nesting in the cracks, but pretty active during the day. Luckily, they only attempted to sting the rubber on my cams. Jun 4, 2014
