Climb the acute corner feature sort of in the middle of the wall. Crux is getting off the ground. Protects well throughout. There is a second pitch that climbs the steep slab above the corner.


Rappell from a tree off to the left.

The tree on the left is rooted in steep steep dirt behind a perched boulder. As i was setting up to rap, i was exposing the roots of the tree. It does not seem sustainable to continue using the tree, plus you lose some good climbing. It seems more natural to belay from the top of the pillar, but that would require new bolts.

The FA party has granted permission for a two bolt anchor to be placed up on the ledge. Go for it if you have the proper means.
