Ben Brooke traversing left above the roof on The N...
5.6+ (Williams guide) - G/PG - P1 100' - Climb the corner, move right to go around the rooflet, then gain a horizontal crack above the roof and use it to traverse 15 feet left to a tree. Climb behind tree, following "The Nose" (arete) to the top.
25 feet Left of Fillipina in a left facing corner with a crack and medium tree leaning against the roof 30 feet up.
Gear is there if you look. Anchor at top, rope stretcher to the ground with a 60m, we used a 70m. Could move right during rappel to P1 anchors on Fillipina.

This is a serious 5.6 lead. Definitely not for beginners. Quality climbing the entire way, could use some brushing on the upper sections of the arete.

The leaning tree is a feature I've never experienced before. Really unique on a windy day. Sling carefully to avoid rope drag.

very fun climb. Sling long to avoid rope drag. Traverse looks intimidating, but, it's all there and it has great pro. Take your time up the nose, you will find pro if you look carefully. Worth doing. Oh yeah...the tree is fun, especially when the wind is blowing.
