Description 

Playin' Possum is located just right of Nettlesome. P1 & P2 can easily be combined for a long and fun 5.8 jaunt.

P1. Begin up a small corner just behind a tree, and continue up fun 5.8 moves to an anchor.

P2. Slabbier than P1, P2 continues up another 5 clips to an anchor (5.8).

P3. This pitch is the meat of the climb. Getting established on the face requires some thought, but is not as hard as it might appear. Follow bolts to a shallow, diagonaling crack which requires supplemental gear (~30'). Bolts lead from the end of the crack to the anchor through additional fun and thought provoking moves (5.10a at the beginning and end).


Protection 

Bolts, plus gear to 1.5". A few stoppers and a #1/#2 cam would be plenty.
