Description:

Boulder up blocky pillar to pine at base of route. Place an optional 3-3.5" cam between the pillar and the wall. Negotiate thin face to two roofs and more thin face, clipping 4 or 5 bolts. Small run to finishing mantle. Below mantle place (optional) 3.5" cam (lower and better) and/or 2.5" cam (higher, but not quite as good). Make a few more move and sling tree at top.

5 out of 5 stars Excellent Route

If this is the one I'm thinking of, it is just left of the trad route Pump House (5.8), and begins 30 ft off the ground on a ledge near a small pine tree that can be used as a ground anchor.

Optional cam placement just before the bolt, and before committing to first hard move at the initial roof. You can either use a small C3 in an undercling on the left or a larger cam on the right.

Rap off the tree on top, there are like 100 slings with oval washers through them. Have fun with the rope drag!

More like 11a, not 11d.

3 out of 5 stars Great route.

Route is right of the gash of death, right of I'll Be Danned, no where near Pump House. Nice 2.5" cam protects the mantle. Good cordage on the tree. 11d? I think so.
