This route is a semi-fun toprope that is fun to do after doing other routes in the area. The crux is getting over the first overhang, on the left side, near the bottom. There is no pro here, so the route is best to top rope. The second overhang goes on its right side using the arête as a layback hold. A small cam can be placed here if you are crazy enough to try a lead. Both overhangs involve a high step to surmount. The rest of the route is fairly easy and will take protection. However, I would toprope the route.


This route is between Pine Tree Eliminate and Flaked Out. It goes up the face through two small overhangs. Use the bolt anchor on Seams Thin to descend.


This is a toprope route. Bring small cams if you are crazy enough to lead it. There are anchor bolts up top to the left.

There is crumbly rock below the second overhang; both my friend and myself knocked off baseball-sized blocks with our feet. Agree that it would be difficult to lead. Best to TR. We set up an anchor above Pine Tree Eliminate though a fall would have a bit of a pendulum at the top.
