BETA PHOTO: Orange line and black loops belays.

Description 

The crux is on the long lower slab with its pretend belay above that is gear at crux to Perennial ledge. Move down right until traverse ledge ends below white rock fractured head wall. Pretend to have a belay and climb up central depression (5-2) with little gear. It terminates at good belay ledge slightly to the right. climb up steep Gunk like horizontal broken giant rock fractured stacked wall (5-4) till stopped by root/dirt ceiling tree line. Escape right to trees growing out of near vertical rock gully. Two raps to ground. Although I gave this climb a low rating the last pitch is exciting. Don't know condition of this fractured wall now. It was solid then and before my brother and I climbed it, I free soloed reasonable tree down climbing to the branches of next tree climbed down gully.


Location 

On the far side of the tree ledge below and east before the third pitch of Perennial. Go up when there is no other way to go. No belay to keep rope straight.


Protection 

trad rack. Little protection until last pitch.
