Access Issue: Tree Preservation and Rappelling Details

Description

Directississima (AKA Doubleissima), is a fantastic crack climb on the right side of the High E buttress. It's well protected, very sustained, and long.

Starting at a crack system well right of the arete, climb up to the Directissima ledge and belay (5.8+, some tricky gear); or continue onwards, heading straight up off the middle of the ledge into the meat of the climbing. The crux comes in pulling through a small roof/notch.

Belay at the top of the High E buttress and rap the bolted line just right of the climb.

Protection

Standard Rack.
