Description

Start at a large left angling crack in a slab about 15' left of the corner start to Out of the Forest.

Climb the large crack to the tree ledge. Move left to the arete next to a maple tree clump. Climb the face/arete placing gear into a small right facing corner. Clip a bolt and exit the corner onto a foot ledge. Continue up the slab past a second bolt and a mild runout on easier terrain. Finish up a quartz dike in the headwall and finish at the pine tree (shared with Out of the Forest).

I thought the white face below the 2nd bolt 5.9; as for the (lower) "arete by the tree clump"....I guess the arete is climbable using 'rock only' [although I would venture a guess at a grade harder than 5.9]; I'll admit I started with a 'tree move' and even with THAT thought it pretty 5.9-ish.
Also, looking at what you'd hit, and where you'd wind up if you blew off the first few moves before clipping the 2nd bolt....wouldn't be pretty. Aug 13, 2015
