Description
P1 - Climb up the crack/flake eventually working right past two bolts. Continue face climbing/slabbing past a bolt and a bolt right at a mossy ledge. Build a belay at a horizontal with medium to large gear when you run out of rope. You will be about 20 feet shy of a pine tree (Peter Young Tree) - or simul to the tree. P2 - Climb up the featured slab/watergroove past a couple of bolts and some gear to a bolted belay. (This pitch may be wet)
Descent - rap to the anchors down and right on Shimer Down at the top of 2nd pitch and continue 2 more raps to the ground. See topo.
Descent - rap to the anchors down and right on Shimer Down at the top of 2nd pitch and continue 2 more raps to the ground. See topo.
Also, the moderate first pitch slabbing and second pitch grooving are, like many of the routes in this area, great introductions to Laurel. Hopefully the new trail and new information will help give these routes a little more traffic. Jan 8, 2015
