Description

One of the more popular routes on the slab; most folk skip P1 and P3 and walk up to the tree belay stance at the start of P2. [R Hall added May 2017]

The route (P2) starts on the low angled slab and climbs up through the bulge in the white streak. Clip an older 3/8" bolt at the bulge (crux) and continue up past another (new) 3/8" bolt (which replaced the old 1/4") to a 2 bolt anchor set for rapping. Pitch 3 continues up to the woods on easier climbing. Rap with 2 ropes, even from the 2 bolt anchor.

Alternate/Variation to P1 - see topo in photos

BEWARE the error in the Handren guide that states the 2nd P is 70feet...it's more like 130-140 ft; in any event even a single 70meter rope (115ft doubled) doesn't get you back to the belay from the anchors. It will, however, get you to the old 3/8" single bolt...if you're into that sort of thing.
