DescriptionI called this a "trad" route because there is a significant runout from the last bolt to the chains (on very easy ground) that is protect-able with a nut or cam. Without that gear, there is potential for a possible ground-fall; however a confident 5.9 leader may safely choose to skip this nut placement.
Crux comes just as you pass the first bolt and is well protected. Fun climbing up the corner to easier ground above. 3 or 4 bolts to long runout to chains. Though the runout is on very easy ground, there is a crack that takes finger-sized nuts so you might as well stick one in there. Shares chains with Input (right) and Branch Breaker (left).
