Middle of climb looking down.

Description 

Start from the belay at the top of 'Slack' or as we did belay higher up past the next set of anchors. Slack's second pitch goes up and right through a break in the wall. Instead climb up and left under the ceiling past a small tree (please don't cut the tree off) that is a nuisance to get past it. Then under this ceiling is the crux. It'll be (5.6) only one way, other rwise it'll be way harder. Protection is an excellent cam crack. Escape left and up onto the ramp. At the top is a pin, then a bolt. Three pins up and off to a nice belay spot before the actual top. Rope drag was almost too much from the ceiling. Not much can be done about it. Making the slings way long in the crux would stop some of the drag but it would be kind of spooky. This climb goes up quartzite. It's a fixer upper. It's better than any of the other finishes to climbs in this section. The flake near the end on the left of the dead tree, is weaker than it appears too be.

Location 

Start at the top of 'Slack'. Climb up on 'Slack' (probably has the least rope drag) or on the outside edge (exposed) until you can move up and left to get under the ceiling.

Protection 

nuts and small to medium cams.
