Valerie following on Lichenbrau, pitch 1 5.6

An under-appreciated gem if done in one pitch. Not "PG-13." Save a red camalot for the section preceding the bolt.

I felt like PG13 is an appropriate rating for this one. Not especially dangerous, but definitely makes you think.

First pitch wasn't that special, but the tree belay was awesome, and the rest of the climb was pretty good.
