The Rub 

Slab up through three bolts, place some gear on the left, and run it up to a pin, then up into the trees. Hand drilled on lead. Maybe a little runout as the leader was tired of drilling.


Location 

The slab to the right of the base of the GWI.


The Gear 

3 bolts, a pin, and some gear

Surprisingly quality- no FA quality-creep here. Loose rubble at the top is a moderate threat- so stash packs and belayers appropriately and bring some extra tat for the aging tree anchor.
