Jesse M leading Land Down Under

Description 

An excellent thin crack leading to a wider layback flake forming the left side of a prominent pillar. Near the top of the pillar, clip the route's single bolt and move right onto the arete, then hand traverse right to a ledge with a bolted anchor.

Location 

Climb any route on Kokanee Slab, then continue up a mossy 5.6 link pitch to a bolted belay at the base of the route.

Protection 

Gear to 2". Rap anchor. Some thin pro (small nut and/or blue TCU) is very useful to protect the bouldery first moves

Good route, but dont fall on the expando thin flake start. Could use a couple bolts in the solid rock to the side.
