A little further up. Don't count on that bush hold...


Route climbs up left side of hanging dihedral, left of obvious roof a short distance above ground. Crux moves are close to ground. Above dihedral, route eases back to easy fifth. Climb up the easy slabs staying sorta right, following whatever protection you can find. You'll pop up on a 2-3" ledge/walkway if you've stayed right. Walk to the tree with the rapp webbing on it.

Grade is 5.8+ or whatever. I don't know what to rate things anymore.


Check topo. Route starts left of obvious roof about 10ft off the ground. Left of thin flake hanging below roof. Little finger crack allows one to place pro right off the ground.


Standard rack for the area (see main page). Focus on small cams and nuts, several double length slings.
