DescriptionThis is a good route with a bit of everything. The first pitch is a 20m chimney.
It feels pretty secure if you know how to use your shins to bridge the gap! This could be done with just a set of #3-#6, but a Big Bro or two lets you get gear in earlier, 5.9.
For the Yosemite fans, the second pitch is the hermaphrodite's flake of the South Platte. Tunnel under the flake for 15-20m, them jam the good hand crack to the tree ledge. There is good pro all the way, 5.8 (SR).
Pivot the anchor around the tree, and take the FOURTH crack to the right up past one tree to the belay tree on top. This finger crack starts as a layback looking crack and is easy to miss, so don't take the other thinner cracks! 5.6, 30m. Small gear is useful. The route is guano free, FYI.
