BETA PHOTO: Earth and Sky

Description 

Climb the dirty slab trending slightly right then back left to a short flake leading up to the first small overlap (pin). Move straight up to the large overlap (pin) and traverse right (first crux, strenuous) on underclings to the inside corner leading to "Merrymeeting Ledge", a 5' deep ledge with trees. Sling the largest tree up high and boulder straight up the steep friction slab/face (second crux) to an easy exit on good flakes. Fixed webbing anchor with quick link. A 60M rope will just get you down.

Location 

At the far left of the cliff is a dirty slab leading to a series of headwalls and overlaps. Earth and Sky climbs up to the obvious overhang leading to a right facing dihedral.

Protection 

Two fixed pins, a few small stoppers, and cams to 2"
