|(8) Old School Wall
First pitch goes up a dihedral 20' and mantles onto a ledge. walk 15' right and continue up going around the trees and slinging your pro to avoid drag. just above the tree a slab with two bolts will appear. Fat bolts just behind the tree in the corner.
Second pitch is super short. Follow path of least resistance. When you get to the ledge, traverse right along the airy grassy ledge. belay at the large tree. Either rap from the first pitch or walk off from the second.
Note: as of 3-2012, there is a piece of blue webbing wrapped around a dead and detached tree trunk at the top of pitch 2. My gut says don't use it and opt for traversing right.
This is the first route you will come to after passing the heaven's ledge area. Just ten feet uphill of the fallen tree that everyone sit's on. Starts in a deep corner.
Pro to 2" and 2 bolts. Bring several alpine draws or extra slings. Protect the traverse for the second.
