Description

Playin' Possum is located just right of Nettlesome. P1 & P2 can easily be combined for a long and fun 5.8 jaunt.

P1. Begin up a small corner just behind a tree, and continue up fun 5.8 moves to an anchor.

P2. Slabbier than P1, P2 continues up another 5 clips to an anchor (5.8).

P3. This pitch is the meat of the climb. Getting established on the face requires some thought, but is not as hard as it might appear. Follow bolts to a shallow, diagonaling crack which requires supplemental gear (~30'). Bolts lead from the end of the crack to the anchor through additional fun and thought provoking moves (5.10a at the beginning and end).

Protection

Bolts, plus gear to 1.5". A few stoppers and a #1/#2 cam would be plenty.

Pitch 3 is awesome, and not too hard. The crux is nicely protected. Pitch 2 is a bit lame with maybe one 5.7 move and a short, tightly protected low angle slab after (5.6?) but 1 and 3 are both very fun. I only placed one piece of supplementary gear (a .75), smaller gear (0 - 1 metolius) might come in handy for someone leading at their limit. Oct 3, 2016

Lead pitches 1 and 2 on sport. We did not climb pitch 3.

Pitch 1 was decent 5.8 with a lower crux.
Pitch 2 was fun smearing slab! May 18, 2015
