DescriptionCleaned up, this would be an excellent easy climb up the Bella Vista Slab.
P1: Climb up to a crack leading to the right-facing corner, then climb the corner to its end. Climb up onto a stance at a horizontal shelf, step left, and climb a series of pockets in a seam on easing-angled slab to a ledge with small oak trees left of an obvious steep headwall.
P2: Climb slab and left-facing corner left of the headwall to a point where one can climb up right around the corner onto the main slab. Climb up to a fixed anchor on a spruce tree and belay.
P3: Climb left of the spruce tree to a wide crack in slab, follow it to its end, then continue up easy slab to reach an oak tree with a fixed rappel anchor. Continue up to another oak tree at a good stance a few feet higher.
P4: Climb up and left onto the right edge of the slab to the left, and follow easy breaks and brushy gullies to perched blocks. Step left to join the last couple moves of Bella Vista.
