Description 

Climb straight up then around the overhang to the left. Work your way into the chimney up to a small ledge. Continue up to the roof. Traverse left under the roof then up for the finish

Location 

Directly behind the now two fallen trees.

Protection 

Takes both active and passive pro. Sling the tree high if you are setting up a top rope to reduce rope drag.

This was also my first trad lead. The rusty pins(2) are still there.

haha this climb is ridiculous. Mental crux pulling onto the ramp on the right about halfway up (yea, you're gonna clip that nasty, rusty, bent piton. . .but look for something better. . .). Neat climb with a lot of stemming and chimney technique. Definitely one of the more interesting 5.5s I've climbed, which isn't an especially illustrious grade, anyway. Worth hitting if you're in the neighborhood, for sure.
