Access Issue: Tree Preservation and Rappelling Details

Description

This is an excellent climb for someone breaking into the grade, with a low, well-protected crux that's easy to back off of (with the help of the tree!).

Spot a large oak tree right next to the cliff; City Lights starts behind the tree, at a thin crack with two triangular pod about 20' up that look like the Sterling Rope logo.

P1: Climb the thin crack and make a slippery move into the pod on polished rock (crux). Continue to a ledge, move left and climb a right-facing flake. Continue up the face, trending left, following the easiest line (or traverse right about 20', then head upwards, at a similar grade and protection). Aim for a small overhang to a small ledge and a 2-bolt anchor. 5.8-, 80'.

P2: Move left and climb a steep right-facing corner to its top. Continue up the face above to a 2-bolt anchor on a good ledge. 5.7, 90'.

Descend via two raps with a 60m rope.

Protection

Standard Rack.
