Climb Plinth for approximately 5 feet. Plug in your big cam (#4 or #4.5 Camalot) and head up left on the angling crack system. Place a 0.5 tri-cam (key piece) and maybe a few other nuts, before committing to the hard-to-reverse moves of the crack system. Get a bomber nut in and breathe easier. Climb hard moves up around the hanging arete with good gear. Follow the crack system onto easier ground and go to the anchors of Tombstone's tree belay.


Standard Eldo Rack, plus: .5 Tri-cam, #4 or 4.5 Camalot.
