DescriptionA climb of moderate difficulty, the FA was done old-school tied in on a bowline on a coil... because of a forgotten harness.
Step out just right from a small pine growing at the cliff base at the right-most margin of this section of cliff. Step up into a small crack and tiny, right-facing corner, and get protection before making some awkward moves (crux) to establish yourself in the crack. One more protection point and an additional awkward move (powerful) are required to reach easier climbing to the top.
Overall, it is not a bad climb, and climbs better than it looks. A picture will be submitted soon.
LocationA few hundred meters up the cliff from Megasaurus and Liquid Crystal, a smaller cliff line runs 30' of near vertical to an additional 30' of slab. Back To Basics climbs the left-most line on this face, starting just a step right of a small pine growing against the base.
