BETA PHOTO: Melchsee sector 7 J. Central - Alcove K. Central...

Description 

Thoughtful moves on small footholds.

Up thru the alcove and up to the standing dead tree.

warning: The rock on and near this route has not been climbed much yet, and some of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

Location 

Under the big standing dead tree at the top of this low cliff, there are two right-facing corners about 25 feet apart along the base of this cliff.
This route starts about 10 feet left from the right one of those two corners -- under a small alcove just right of a small roof 2 feet wide 5 inches deep.

Protection 

No anchor hardware or intermediate bolts as of May 2017.

Top-Roping: Perhaps could use the standing dead tree at the top of the cliff as anchor.

For ideas about how to get access to set up top anchor, see Description page for Melchsee sector.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
