Description

The cleanest approach pitch of Back to the Primitive. Climb the clean slot with the finger-thin-hand crack in the back to start. Follow this up until it seams out, then step left to the ledge. Continue up the thin face with intermittent cracks until level with the big tree, and step back right. Try not to pull on the rock at the lip, as it seems to just be held in place by dirt and roots. Scramble up to the anchor, trying not to kick down any of the numerous loose rocks, and belay from here. Rappel from the webbing/maillon anchor.

Location

Left side of Primitive South, the most obvious, cleanest route straight up to the big tree on the ledge.

Protection

#.4-2, double .4-.75
