BETA PHOTO: Changeling.
Changeling is located just to the right of Trickster Coyote and is very similar in character. It is more sustained than Coyote, and felt a little harder than the 5.7 rating. Start up a face that quickly brings you to a small, shallow dihedral. There are some awkward, twisting moves through the dihedral. The crux is about half way up and involves thin face moves over thin gear. There is a small tricam pocket just above the crux and a couple of good Alien placements. As the route begins to move left and join Coyote, move right and follow a nice crack through a bulge (also awkward) and continue up to a good ledge shared with the top of Coyote. Bring a good selection of protection.
Standard rack to #3 Camalot. Tricams and TCUs helpful. Gear anchor, tree rappel.
