A fun pitch with mixed gear. We have plans to push the route higher, but had to leave due to hurricane Irene. (Closure of the Whites!) All protection bolts and pins were placed free on the lead by hand except for bolt 2 which was placed from a hook.
P1: Climb up the short right facing corner with gear. Move left around the arete onto the face and clip a bolt. Climb the face past a second bolt and move into another right facing corner. Climb the corner past a bolt and gain a stance with a knife blade. Continue up the corner/face placing gear. Finish up a mild runout over a headwall with an obvious hole, finish up through the pockets. (Do not top out on the left arete, very chossy!) Move up to the tree ledge above. Rap from trees. A 60M will get you to the ground after rope stretch.
5.10 PG. 100'
P2: To be continued....
Scramble up hill and left of the main slab to the height of the land. Walk left maybe 150-200 yards moving up with the height of the land. Obvious Buttress with bolts
3 bolts, small-mid sizes, knife blade, trees
