BETA PHOTO: Looking up Spic and Span, 5.2

Description 

Straight forward climbing on mostly clean rock (might have to brush off leaves and pine needles). Climbs up and slightly right to the right side of a small pine tree at 25 feet, then up and slightly left to a slung tree with rap rings. Anchor was in good shape when we did it Oct 2014.

Location 

Uphill (left) from Whet Stone behind a large Oak tree. 10 feet right of the Orc Stone corner.

Protection 

Standard Rack, rap station at top.

The black spruce tree at 15 feet mentioned in the Williams guide is no longer there (only the stump remains).

This has a few easy moves and takes good gear. Would be a good climb for a new leader. While I didn't think it deserved a star, it's worth doing.

We originally climbed this with the plan to top rope the first pitch (5.7) of Elf Stone Direct, but once at the top it looked like a number of directionals would be needed so we just moved on.
