Fun stuff, thanks for the photo Scooter.

Description 

Very fun, moderate traditional line. Start in the left most crack system on the east face of The Coop. Continue in the crack, placing a wide range of stoppers and cams to the crux ~2/3 the way up. Step left toward the wide slot near the top. Belay at summit. Rappel The Last Chicken (single 60m).

I loved this completely trad route-fun placing gear the whole way. This is a good one to start with, then continue to the other routes on the right. Nice!

A good intro to LDE. Sustained at the grade with great pro all the way.

I thought this was a solid 8+ because the more you look around , the more there is and when the handholds get thin the feet are solid.

A fine intro to climbing at LDE, as it was my first in the area. Lots to hang onto, placements straight forward, and the usual nice views at the top. Thanks a bunch!
