Matt Peer chasing the sun!

Description 

Climb a cleaned rib on the left to small ledges. Climb up and right crossing a slab (bolt) to a good crack up and right of a small bushy ledge. Step right and climb beautiful 5.8 face (crux) straight up passing two bolts to where the angle eases off before a 6” diameter spruce tree in the center of the face. Climb slightly left up shallow corners to the top (5.4). Belay at a small clump of maple trees at the top of the face.

Location 

Traverse all the way left under the face until at its end on scrubby ledges. Step up a bit and then traverse back right to a medium sized oak tree belay above a small wall. You will see the protection bolts on the climb above and left of an overhang.

Protection 

Standard Rack, 3 bolts
