Description

Left Branch departs from the shared start with Right Branch when it trends... left!

The start is a combination of jams in a double crack and big, fun moves on blocky terrain that culminate in standing on top a big rock fang. After this, you follow the left leaning jam crack, largely using nubbins on the face for feet.

Location

Pretty obvious, the left branch of the "Y"

Protection

Medium to 3", chains

Both this and right branch are classics. Some may find this variation a bit easier than the upper section of Right Branch which is probably 5.9 wide hands. May 27, 2014
