Description

Good route, but the anchor can be very, very tricky - Either bring a LOT of static line and go way back to some acceptable trees, or sling a closer tree, put yourself on rappel, and downclimb/lower to a ledge with more gear options.

Location

The route starts in front of a large tree with the blue/yellow blaze. Start at obvious right-curving seam at bottom, go up and left to edge of small roof (crux), pull through and follow discontinuous seam to top. Easy walkoff.

Protection

Pro seems to be on the PG side, and small. Gear only anchor.

Gear was more R than PG. Nov 3, 2014
Stay left of the usual line (easy) then hit the last face a few feet left of the broad, upper arete (5.10). Watch out for the blackberry bushes on top if you do it this way. I call this variation "A Cute Face".

Summer 2010 - the huge hemlock tree at the base was hit by lightning. Look at the strip of blasted-off bark.

Summer 2013 - alas, the tree has died. Jun 23, 2010
