Description

This route is perfect for a really beginner leader just looking to practice the craft or an easy non committing solo up the slabs... It is a bit dirty in a few part but all in all i was pleasantly surprised... If you're a new leader, be warned that there are some major runouts - see the photos! If you start to get uncomfortable or you run into major sections of wet slab, you can usually bail off to climber's right.

Pitch 1: (5.2) same at Beginners route... Climb straight up to the big pine tree...
Pitch 2: (5.2) Move right and climb a slightly crumbly gully to another tree anchor...
Pitch 3: (low 5th class) scramble up this dirty pitch through trees to another tree anchor...
Pitch 4: (5.3) Up and right to an AWESOME crack that leads up to the steep headwall... As the crack ends move to the right and belay from a tree on the edge of the woods...
Pitch 5: (5.3) Find your favorite way to get through the steep section and start up the slab maze above...
Pitches 6-8: Weave your way through the slabs being careful not to get yourself in to a bind as the gear is scarce... For the most part staying right looked easiest... there are trees to belay from here and there...

Location

The farthest route right on the slabs...
You can rap along the route from the overlaps if you don't like the moderate adventure at the top...

Protection

Normal rack... Rap rings on the trees most of the way...
