DescriptionAnd a life lesson.
P1. 75, 5.6 Climb the only clean section of cliff in the vicinity up to a small ledge with a tree.
P2. 75, 5.7+ From the ledge move right and up past a bulge (crux) protected by a small cam placement under a flake (the only gear on the route) continue up to the trees.
While exploring the area one day I thought I would just take a short cut to the top. The plan was to solo up this clean section of cliff. After passing the tree ledge with a full pack on I was held up at a bulge. I down climbed back to the ledge and after some sole searching tied off to the tree and led the second pitch rope solo. Although not the type of thing I would like to do everyday it was a fun adventure and a good experience.
LocationThis route is a few hundred feet left and uphill from the Left Buttress. It is the cleanest section of cliff on the wall.
