The Pocket, Leavenworth

Description 

An incredible problem with long moves on sloping dishes. Start sitting, and pull a series of fun, technical moves through perfect rock until you come to a high crux at the lip. Pull the crux, which is great, and do the relatively simple topout.

Climbing this problem feels like flying.

Location 

Behind Wooly Mammoth and The Dish. Look for the tall, beautiful, pocketed face.

Protection 

The danger is entirely dependent on how many pads and spotters you have. If you show up with just yourself, your spotter Bubba, and a pad, you better not fall from the crux.
It could be really safe, however, if you bring your soccer team with you.

Don't be scared by the PG13 rating. Slice of Pie is PG13, maybe R. This is PG at most. (It's rated G in my book). Not THAT tall, not THAT scary. Just an uneven landing but it's still relatively flat. The moves up high aren't even that bad! Just have a few (like 3 is fine) pads to even out the landing. The crux for me was going to the shallow pocket and it's not that high off the ground.
