"The Dude" threading the needle.


Start at yellow birch tree, make some easy moves up to a ledge, make more fun moves up to the anchor.
This is a great route for the trad leader who is just learning.


Start at the yellow birch just past the set of rock stairs.


Stnd. Rack, bolted anchor.

This starts as the Maiming of the Shrew but finished up and right through a crack instead of breaking left to the bolted anchors...
