BETA PHOTO: Upper section, past the crux


From Phredward: Cross over the jumbled blocks on the ground. Stand up tall to grab good holds on the first crack. Struggle, grunt, and battle your way up the bulge, which is the crux. Continue to easier ground, and pull the roof.

For a top rope anchor, there's two big blocks you can sling.


This route is next to another blazed tree about forty feet right of Acute Corner, and is four feet to the right of a right-facing corner.
