Broken Ladder is a fun face climb that starts about 3 feet left of the corner between Many Pines Buttress and Two Pines Buttress (Anemia, Rt 90). Start up on steeper rock using crimp holds that aren't easily spotted. Continue up to the ledge with the pine tree, passing it on your left. Once past the pine tree the rock angle eases a bit and the holds become less defined. Climb up this slab avoiding the shallow dihedral of Anemia to your right. Continue on easy terrain to the top.

This climb can be lead in a variety of ways. Bring nuts and some cams.
