BETA PHOTO: Treet, Lower Leda, TN

Description 

Jam your way up the crack until you are in the corner beneath the roof. A hand traverse to the right and an awkward mantle gets you a nice stance on the triangular ledge. From here, step left and onto the arete above the roof, and head to the top.

We topped out to the right of the smaller dead tree hanging down from the top. Tiny pro in horizontals and lots of small, dirty holds made this last section feel more like 5.9. Were it to clean up a bit, it would probably feel easier.

Location 

The leftmost documented route at Lower Leda. Keep following the cliffside trail left until it squeezes past a large, low boulder near the wall. A massive block on the wall with cracks on both sides of it forms a low roof. Treet ascends the left crack up to a left facing corner below a roof, then goes up the arete after pulling the roof.

Protection 

Standard rack. Be careful where you place pro under the roof as some of the rock sounds really hollow up there.

Once you top out, there are slings and rings around a big tree sitting back from the edge over the corner.
