Description

Climb the crack that leads between the two trees. It starts out as a hand crack at the bottom and gets steadily wider near the top (up to a #3.5 or #4 Camalot). Continue up a second, smaller crack just left of the first tree (the crux is avoiding the tree). Climb through a small overhang right of the second tree, and follow a third crack (hands) to the anchors. Fun climbing, great protection.

Location

About 15-20 feet right of the ladder. Look for a smooth face right of Maiming of the Shrew split by two horizontals. Skeletal Ribs is the prominent, widening crack right of the face that climbs between two trees growing out of the wall.

Protection

Standard rack with a couple of bigger cams. 2 bolt anchor at the top.

I doubt the forest service would mind as long as you informed them of your intentions. A lot of forest rangers climb so I'm sure they might facilitate the removal or grant you some special permit.
