gear anchors. Large cams in a #2-3.5 camalot are very useful.
4ish pitches. From the Apron parking lot, walk back to the FSR and walk up it for ~20m. Take the trail up into the woods for ~10min, keeping left until you reach a small treed alcove. Rope up here and do a full pitch of 4thclass/5.8 tree climbing until you reach baseline ledge (head left off the last ledge before baseline). Start up the beauty fist size crack for pitch one and belay in a small scoop above a bulge(5.9). Switch crack systems and up through a deep groove on pitch two(5.9). belay just below a short roof bulge or head on through it on the righthand crack if you have a 60m rope(don't know if it goes with a 50m)(5.9). Finish up the easy slabs and then to the left with a hand traverse under a bulge(4th/5th). This puts you at the gully below Memorial Ledge or almost right at Karen's Math.
