Access Issue: Tree Preservation and Rappelling Details

Description

So there you are at the Arrow wall and all of the classics are occupied. What to do? Try Red Pillar.

P1: Climb an easy right-facing, left-leaning corner / gully just left of Three Doves. From the ledge on top, climb up clean rock to steeper ground. Place gear and work up and left, past an old pin, and up to the GT Ledge. Definitely on the stiff side of 5.5, 100'.

P2: From the GT Ledge, step right about 10' and look for an obvious right-facing corner. Either climb straight up to it, or climb the face to the right then head back to the corner. Head up the corner and cracks, then step left onto the arete, aiming to pass the overhang at the notch. A fun, well-protected slot takes you to the top. 5.5, 100'.

Descend via Arrow or Three Doves rappels.

Location

Take the Arrow access trail and walk left when you get to the cliff. Look for the start of Three Doves, a 15'-high flake leaning against the cliff. Red Pillar is the obvious easy (4th-class) corner about 20' left of Three Doves. This is about 100' left of Arrow.

Protection

A few small Aliens will make P1 feel more secure.
