Raptor Closures - 2016 Tunnel 2 Closure Lifted / Upper Canyon Road closures MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Climb discontinuous cracks and flakes left of Pine Tree Eliminate. Top out on a short crack on top to a ledge with an anchor.

Eds. The length of the route is listed as longer, since using a the 2 anchor bolts up and left and a 100' rope will not allow you to belay your second from the ground. It was originally listed as a 30' route.

Location 

It is on the Short Slab Wall left of the steep section.

Protection 

Standard rack. Two bolt anchor up and left.

I was able to lead this one using only small cams, namely my BD c3s, but would not encourage this as a gear route, only one garbage 000 c3 placement halfway up for minimal comfort, a few sparce placements down low and up top. I much more recommend setting up a toprope from the bolted rap station, if possible extending the anchor some 15ft to get the rope over the lip. Short, fun climb though.

I think the gear on this is ok. You can place more than just C3s. Any difficult move protects with gear. I used a nut and small cams up to a 0.75 Camalot on this.
