Description:

First pitch is long to a small tree with numerous rappel slings and rings. Tree is suspect but backed with a pink tricam. If you opt to RAP after the first pitch you will need two ropes. I may have gone off route a time or two cause it felt harder that a 5.3. Bring radios or have a good rope tug system going for communications, RT 80 is LOUD.

Descent Options:

two rope RAP, 4th class escape hatch is off to the left from the top (according to guide books).

5 out of 5 stars CLASSIC

It was my very first lead and now its my common route to just cruz at the end of a hard day if were trying to get inverical feet. If you want to make it more inreresting just bring nuts and a #4 camalot for the bit horizontal up top. CAN BE DONE IN ONE PITCH W/ A 60M
