Witch Hazel from the side. Due to the bright light...

Description 

Climb into the cave and SDS on the prominent undercling. Work you way up the rail and the right arete until its possible to turn onto the face. Brace yourself for a somewhat tricky and elusive topout.

Careful not to dab, this one gets a bit tight.

Location 

If you can find Hematoma, you can find this on. While standing on the main trail and looking at Hematoma, work your way around the left side of the boulder and go to the backside. You'll walk into a small corridor and Witch Hazel will be on your left. R2-D2 and The Wookie will be to your left.

Protection 

2 pads. This one has a pretty steep ramp that you'll land on if you come off. Because of the steepness, you'll likely slide down just like a sliding board. With only one pad, its hard to get it to lay without sliding down. With two pads, you can pretty much cover the whole ramp.

There is a slight, but very real chance of falling off the short face and missing the ramp. If this happens, you're in for quite an uncontrollable fall into a pit. An attentive spotter is a plus for this one.
