Description

Really, though, there is only one tree to dance with. Begin at the series of short, blocky right-facing corners 8' left of Driving With The Top Down. Climb up these short corners to a stance. Then either step right and continue up the main corner (awkward, with the tree) until it ends, or aim slightly left and ascend the outside face just left of the main corner on a series of welcome but not obvious holds (avoids dancing with the tree). Where the two lines meet again, follow the thin crack in the face left of the shallow left-leaning corner to the top. There are other finish variations to this route on the right. (Indy)

The trad safety rating is verging on R. You will need a .3 black diamond X4. The placement of the .3 is at shoulder level when you are standing on the last major ledge. This will be your last placement and is roughly 65% of the way up the wall. A .4 cam will also be helpful.

Not recommended for new trad leaders. Feb 8, 2015
