From the top of the second pitch of Daddy Long Legs, angle up and right on the slab. Follow the bolt line slightly left and then head for the crack to the right which leads to the large tree.

The guide book notes that there are two bolts for a rappel station at the tree, but the rappel station is simply webbing around the tree. Bring some webbing in case the ones up there look suspect. Rappel down to the double bolts on the route. It might be good to have some extra webbing at the bolts also. Rappel from the bolts to the top of the second pitch of Daddy Long Legs where there are rap rings. From there rappel down the 11's to the bushy gully.


This climb protects with a pin and six bolts on the slab and with a regular rack in the crack at the top of the climb.
