DescriptionPink Laurel is a sunny and warm route, great for winter days. It uses quite a variety of climbing techniques to ascend the obvious left-facing orange and pink corner, just to the right of Classic.
P1: Start just right of Classic, and climb up the offwidthy ramp on the right to a stance at the bottom of a chimney. Find a way up (crux) into the main corner system, then follow the corner up through the steep but relatively easy chimney sections above, to the big ledge. 5.9, 80 ft.
You can build a belay in the corner, or traverse ~25 feet left to belay at the shared bolt anchor.
P2: Climb through a long flake system located on the right, up the corner, past another roof to an arete, and head to the trees.
P1 and P2 can be run together, but consider that the crux is quite low; between noise from the road and a set-back belay, it's unlikely that you'll hear your follower if s/he has trouble.
Descend by rappel over Classic, or walk off via Radcliffe, or the Uberfall Descent.
