Protection 

Light rack of small to medium cams. Very solid rock. Top out at trees and rap or walk off.

One of the trees at the top that you would think to use as an anchor has an infection. It has some lateral spikes that are small but large enough to break your skin. I grabbed it and punctured my skin leading to an incredible bacterial infection at the site that has taken a week plus antibiotics to recover from. Be aware where you grab.
