Comments: I followed Roach's description. I don't think I exited right at the right place. Sure seemed harder than 5.0. The kids up top throwing rocks down at me might have made it seem harder than it was. I did end up at the same walk off as Freeway. If you go up through the tunnel variation, it won't be the same. Overall, it wasn't as clean and fun as Freeway.

Comments: All of the links to OSMP bird closure information on Mt. Project are broken. The city has changed their web site... Here is the current link:

Comments: Wholly %#€#!!! This chimney looks so easy from the bottom, but it turns out to be pretty hard and scary. Harder than Hatch, Rehatch, and Taking Care of Business all put together! Might as well solo, 'cause the only gear comes after the many cruxes. A #5 would probably help 2/3 of the way up. I had a tipped out #4 on mossy rock, and it was the only decent placement on the whole pitch. It probably wouldn't feel hard if the rock was solid, but it's not.

Comments: If you belay at the first gear/ledge at 120 feet, you can reach the top from here with a 70. So, no more than 360 feet total....
Rap tree?
Rap tree?

You might not want to use this tree anymore. It's very dead and barely holding a big, loose rock.

Comments: Isn't this the same route as Rug Munchers?
We followed the left-facing dihedral/water groove. When the corner ended, we crossed the red rock to the left. We belayed at the ledge below the water groove/slot that Guy mentions. It looked fun, but it was way easier to step back right and up the left-facing flakes.

Comments: That obvious crack is the easy downclimb to the rap anchor.

Comments: 4th class I guess. Much easier than Hillbilly and no problem downclimbing.

Comments: Fun. Be gentle with the undercling flake near the crux. It's helpful, but if someone yards on it, it's gone.

Comments: A small cam (#0.5 c4?) would be helpfull to reach the first bolt. It's a little scary without. Also, there are no rings at the anchor.

Comments: By heading out left early and not placing gear in the dihedral, you can avoid enough rope drag to make the top in one pitch....

Comments: The belay flake/ledge is only about 70 feet up, but a 70m rope reaches the top from there.

Comments: Tod, very true about the block. I jumped up and down on it, and it wouldn't go, but if you stay on the bolt line, you won't disturb it. It would certainly be bad to be there if it ever fell. I'll try to take care of it soon....

Comments: I was annoyed you can't quite link any of the rappels with one rope, you have to do all 3 (if you want the ends to reach), but with two 70s, you can reach all the way down from the top....

Comments: One of these routes had a loose anchor bolt when I climbed it. I think it was this one. Loose stud. Did you notice, Leo?

Comments: Someone must have loved this boulder!?!? In the beginning of September, it became their final resting place as their ashes where scattered around on the ledge above the slab. Bits of bone continue to trickle down on the holds....
Just a heads up if that sort of thing makes you squeamish.
Anyway, rest in peace my fellow Tree Slab aficionado, whoever you were.
