Gear after the FA


Begin in some block cracks and gain the "sideways" arch with a sapling growing out of it. Head up and move under and left of the sapling and up the crack. Top out.

Can be dusty and/or dirty.


Right of BGYG on the blank-ish face with the first right and then left leaning crack with a sapling growing out of it. See pictures.


Standard rack, sling for the tree. Use long static lines for top rope anchors.

If this one stays dry, it's awesome -- similar to BGYGs and another big move leading to a great upper section.

Fun up through the crux by the sapling. After that lots of dirty slopers. So if you like slopers, you might like this climb more -- but perhaps you'll want to clean them first.
