There are two starts, the one on the left stems in a shallow chimney and is harder to protect. The one on the right starts directly above the tree. Climb up through a right-facing dihedral with a few ledges to good ledge with a bolted anchor.


It is left of Monk Sandals.


Bring a single set of 0.3-#1 BD, double up on #2 and #3, and a set of nuts.

Nice climb! Are there more pitches above this?

Yes there are, they're not ready yet. I still have some cleaning to do, I hoping to get it done this weekend. Glad you liked it.

I thought the right hand start was pretty spicy. I had a marginal, #3 rigid Friend in a shallow horizontal that would not have kept me off the deck. I think the left hand start is the way to go on this one. Great hand jams up high!
