Description Suggest change

This is a little pitch that was kind of fun. If you've done most of the classic moderates, can tolerate a bit of runout, you might like this one. Best to choose a dry day, since the lichen still absorbs water.

Okay, should you decide to try this line go up and right into the scooped out area. Note Tim, that low horizontal crack on the right might hold a green Alien, but it fell out on me. Move up to the left to another horizontal. Opposed #4 BD wires & a blue Alien fit. Move up to the next horizontal crack and slot some iffy wires and a good green Alien. Do a lieback/high step and get your feet established above the crack. Now, from here you can go right or up to the twig. Once there, you can get an orange Alien or two and a #3.5 Camalot in easy huecos and cruise to the tree above.

Downclimb up and left as for Washington Irving.

Sorry, old age & I've forgotten a camera at least twice.

Location Suggest change
