Description Suggest change

ATTN: A very large block recently (1/23/2023) fell off the lower portion of Labor Day. Labor Day still appears to be climbable, but use caution while climbing this and neighboring routes. 

Climb the obvious juggy corner utilizing laybacks and solid jams. The original route traverses left and up to the tree at the lip of the cliff (usually adorned with webbing and other tat). There is a bolted anchor at the top of the corner, before the traverse. If you lower off the bolts, the route is 5.8. Do the traverse to earn full 5.10.

Location Suggest change

Left corner of the huge roof by the bridge, on the left side of the amphitheatre.

Protection Suggest change

For the initial corner, up to BD 3 works well. For the traverse, same thing, but an optional big piece may be appreciated. A #5 or even a #6 will augment nicely. A second set of bolts is being installed on the face below the tree, but are not in yet. This pitch, although short, is quite good and deserving of anchors- especially considering the abuse that the tree has received over the years. Currently there is a rusted chain around the tree that isn't to be trusted. Either bring some webbing for the tree, or do the topout.
