Description

Getting to the crack system is hard. Getting pro is a little awkward but it is bomber.

Location

East face of Branching out crag. Drop down the right side of the tower staying close to the wall. When you reach the low angle ramp leading up to the saddle between Mojo and Braching Out head up the ramp. We usually leave our gear hear. Drop down between the to cliffs. This route is on the right side of the slabs between the Branching and Mojo.

Protection

Bolts, Light rack to yellow camalot 2 greens according to Andy. Anchors

This route is essentially a 5.12 sport climb to a 5.10 crack climb. Both will be perplexing and engaging to the leader. Nov 1, 2010
This route has a hard bolt protected start to a right angling crack. The crack takes bomber pro but because of the way I climbed it seeing my gear before and after I placed it was next to impossible. This made the easier section super challenging for me. I wish I had spent a little more time looking at the crack from below as I might have been more comfortable placing the pro blind. It definitely makes the climb more of a test piece and one I will not soon forget. Neither will my partners as I did a lot of whining while trying not to pump out getting the pro placed. Nov 1, 2010

Thanks Christian! And a big thanks to Jimbo, Matt and Charles for their help in the FA. Route-finding, like the lichen up there, may get a bit fuzzy around the tree. Do make sure to wander around...

At the risk of ruining any on-site, [Brave/stupid of heart read no further] I would !!!GEARSPOILER!!! encourage anyone leading this climb to double up on #0.4-1 sizes...Save a 0.4 and 0.5 for the upper chunk and you'll feel a whole lot better about life. Oct 28, 2010
