Description

An interesting climb that takes you on a tour of the main wall. It traverses up and left on a shelf with a thin finger crack. The shelf turns into a roof about half way up and the gear is a bit harder to place.

Location

It starts directly underneath the left side of the roof on the ramp and behind the oak tree. The name says it all.

Protection

Pro to #3 and bolts, rap anchor

BE FOREWARNED... avoid what happened to me today following my partner. Right after pulling the roof, and then traversing towards the right, my foot slipped off, and unfortunately for me the next bit of pro, was the anchor my partner used that was 30-40 feet almost directly to the right, so I took a glorious follow pendulum whip, dropping like a sack of potatoes straight down into the ramp under the roof and, then swinging across the face and through the tree. I cracked my helmet through, and I'm bruised and scraped all over but fortunately I don't seem to have any major issues. Phew. I didn't inspect the whole area above the roof but my partner said there wasn't an anchor or a place to build a natural anchor. Seems like sorta a bs to call something a route without actually having an anchor. Nov 18, 2017

amockalypsenow, the leader is supposed to protect the follower on a traverse by placing gear to avoid a pendulum. Dec 3, 2017

A pretty good route! Pro is pretty good on this route. We found good nut placements up higher just before getting to the piton (the crux).
