The crux step across.

Description 

Pre-Op starts just left of Post-Op, just below a ledge 2 small pines are growing out of. Scramble up to this ledge, and climb up the left side of a flake eventually reaching right to the other side of flake to pull past a hard section. Now follow cracks right on the arete all the way up to a roof, reach up and right to a jug, and swing right onto the face and up to the anchors on Post-op (by the bent pine tree) and lower. There is still lots of lichen on this climb making judicious foot placement necessary.

Location 

Pre-Op is on the right side of the cliff, just left of Post-Op and just right of North Central.

Protection 

Small cams and wires up to a #1 Camalot. Pro is excellent with only a slight run-out at the top.

Nice, short warm-up to get your "trad head on"...if only it were longer, it'd be great. Could be a short second pitch worth checking out above. Search around for an undercling left, and get the overhead!
