3 out of 5 stars low angle slab warm-up

nothing special. use it to warm up. same anchors as the 5.9 (Memory of Trees) next to it.

i cleaned a 2 foot block off of the top to the right of the anchors as I was setting up for photos of a friend on the 5.9. That would have been really bad news if someone had knocked that off 100 feet above belayers. Perhaps that is why this climb does not have its own anchors - if it were moved to the right some beginner would likely use the dirty diheadral to the right and kill someone.
