DescriptionSTART- at the shallow corner (licheny and mossy as of 2014) at the highest point of land. A lonely bolt resides about 25 ft up and just left of the top of the corner.
The climb might gather more stars if the starting corner were cleaned.
P1- Climb up the corner, step left at a stance and clip the bolt ( 30+ yr-old 1/4" replaced by 3/8" in 2014) Climb the face just left of the bolt (crux, 5.8) and establish a gear belay above, or combine with P2.
P2- To the trees, or move right to a tree island with a 3-4" diameter oak and rap from there.
Descent: Rap from the trees with 2 ropes to the ground, or move 30-40 ft to climber's right to a 4-5" diameter tree with a rap anchor. (Not easy to find, and when you do find it there's a tricky (read "dangerous if you slip") move down through some helmock tree(s). Rap from here 95 ft ( 29 m) to the dbl bolt anchors on "Road to Lhasa", then 85 ft to the ground.
