BETA PHOTO: First Blood Part II


Just south of First Blood lies a large block looming overhead at the top of the cliff. Start on a corner and climb straight up under the large block, following an intermittent crack system as you go. Make use of the tricky holds in the shallow dihedral and if you're still hanging on after that, find reprieve from the big buckets under the roof. Finish by going left and up.

Note: The buckets mentioned above are part of a large detached chunk of stone. I kicked at this hard on rappel and couldn't even make it move, but use caution.


Long anchoring materials are helpful for setting up a TR. You can probably get by without any artificial pro due to the large amount of boulders and trees scattered at the top.

This would likely be a poor lead due to lack of protection from what I remember, but feel free to look for placements.
