Description [Suggest Change]

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 [Suggest Change]

Pretty obvious, the left branch of the "Y"

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
