Trad climb crack that starts on far right and traverses left to middle of wall. Excellent trad crack that sucks gear. Great holds and feet. Some overhangs with big holds. Finish at birch tree in middle of wall.
Prefer no drytooling here. Drytooling destroys routes. Tradition is to use web anchors and trad gear
if you really need to drytool. Bolts are for sport climbers. Let's save these climbs for YOUR kids. Thanks. Dreez

This is a difficult lead for novice trad climbers. The two shelves have minimal protection unless you have small gear or use the bolts. Next to that the route is supper fun with a mix of everything including traverses, face climbing, lie-backs, and cracks. Had a hard time placing nuts I would trust, highly recommend cams for this one.
