Access Issue: Tree Preservation and Rappelling Details

Description

P1: (5.6) Climb up the right-facing broken corner to the ledge, then climb up a crack with a small tree (V1). Continue on the easier ground above the tree, make a balancey move up a headwall (crux), and then climb up to the GT ledge. This pitch is a nice and well-protected outing, and you can traverse to the last pitches of routes between Snake and Arrow.

P2: (5.7) Climb a huge right-facing corner, pass a bush, choke off grass and a big tree. Continue up the crack (hand to fist jam at the bottom, chicken wing at the top) to the ledge with rap slings.

V1 5.8 G FA: Joe Bridges, Dick Williams, 1987
From the Snake crack move out left and climb difficult looking finger-crack through an overhanging bulge.

It's also easy to walk just a bit north (right) to the bolted rappel line at Arrow.

Location

Begins 40 ft right of Thin Slabs / Thin Slabs Direct, half way up the slope towards Red Pillar.

Protection

Standard rack, big cams (BD #3-5) for the second pitch
