Mostly .5 and .75" pieces through the crux. Pretty good finger jams with pretty bad feet. Save a 1" cam for the final corner crack above the tree. Also be mindful of a mostly detached block/flake on the right wall of the corner just below the tree.

There's also a new climb just left of Crashline. It climbs through knobs near the arete (past several bolts) and then maybe heads up into a crack system? We didn't try it but it looks interesting, though a bit crusty with lichen.

I didn't place anything smaller than green alien. It was nice to have 3x Green and Yellow Alien for the start. A .75 camalot, red alien and red camalot protect the final stretch of awesome jamming after the tree. You can rap from the top anchor with a 70m rope.

We cleaned a bunch of dirt and leaves out of the crack. Still a bit dirty though...
