Access Issue: Tree Preservation and Rappelling Details

Description

This route feels like three boulder problems stacked on top of each other, with decent rests in between.

The first problem is moving into and through the initial 2-inch overhang. then you get some good holds. Then there is a thin move up to the next horizontal. From here you can move left and get a decent, but not a no-hands, rest. Third problem: move up into and through the right-leaning seam. There are a few marginal rp placements before the seam, and a better RP in the middle of the seam, but it's difficult to stop and place it on lead.

Rappel from chains at April Showers.

Location

Ten feet right of April Showers, below the left edge of a very shallow but distinct overhang

Protection

... not confidence-inspiring. Bring RPs. If the RPs at the base of the seam blow, you will need a good belayer to keep you off the deck.
