Description

Head up to a big left leaning flake, and stay right of the trees. You'll end up going past a series of horizontal cracks, until you reach two bolts on a section of rippled slab. Find nubbins to work through the thin slab (crux,) then head up left to a large tree with some static line and rap rings.

Location

This is at the base of the slab just uphill of 5.12 Comes to Wintergreen (the only bolted route on the wall.) You'll see the big left leaning flake mentioned above.

Protection

The majority of the cracks are dirty and filled with pine needles. Bring a nut tool to clean them out so you can place some gear! Standard rack works great, plus two quickdraws for the bolts on the slab.

Added a second pitch of about 40 ft and finished at the large boulder. Can rap down to the main trail to the west, or rap back to the start. Oct 3, 2016
