Good route. Consistent difficulty and non-trivial gear.

I think I sent this but couldn't really find any gear for a belay. Are you supposed to use the slings hanging high in the tree that grows from the base of G2 the Friction cuz that seemed nuts.. good and sustained although pretty damn chossy, even for my low standards.

Watch the rope drag! Route cuts right and then left over the bulge/ roof and up the thin crack. Go all the way to the pine tree to rap.
