Description

Very defined seam that angles towards the Arborist's anchor (after a small traverse).

Gear is subtle near the bottom of the route but the seam widens up about halfway. Climb up and traverse to the Arborist anchor or top out near the big tree to rappel from.

We pretty much got an F yesterday for stitching this 'off the beaten path' seam at Crowders. Actually to be fair and objective, this line offers some fun/technical movement for a 5.8. That part was enjoyable. This route comes with a "but" though and that's the choss. The two large blocks that mark the start of the route proper are precariously loose (see image)--- just like the one that was obviously perched in between these two blocks which is now gone. Above these two large blocks is some decent rock (and climbing) and then it turns right back into a choss-pile. We did our level best to climb carefully and avoid rotten rock but we still managed to knock several large chunks off the wall.

We rapped off The Arborist anchors which requires a climber's right traverse. That was also pretty rotten and scary. Kinda like watching a seamstress stitch a crappy crooked line.
