1st pitch easy, clean, and fun. 2nd, semi dirty with an exciting finish. left webbing/quicklinks and did 2 raps b/c i didn't know you could walk off.

Tree climbing! I was covered in grunge after this route. It tops out on Lady Slipper-that was fun. The bottom is very sandy; do not attempt to free solo any part of this thing. It does not get enough traffic, so there will likely be breakage and a lot debris.

A single 70 meter rope works fine for the rap. Don't use the dead tree right on the edge of the top out. Look for a strong live tree a couple of feet back from the edge.
