Description

Considering that I always have 10-15ft left on my 70m (~225ft) rope at the second anchor (after linking both pitches), there's no way it's anywhere close to 300ft. It is even a stretch to say it's 215 ft, 210 ft for the whole route (even w/ the traversing nature) is much more accurate.

Location

Scramble up to the first ledge by the dead tree. Next, move left along the ledge until you see some nice slab/scramble moves on better rock closer to the base of the climb.

Also, for descent, you can rappel on two 60 meter ropes from the first anchors down to that first ledge. Traverse west to the dead tree and scramble down.

With a 70m rope, you can link the pitches and still have rope to spare at the anchors. Two single-rope raps with a 70m will get you down, but just barely with rope stretch on P2.

Protection

1-2 up to 3.5", depending on your ability
