Directions:  Keepin' It Natural starts 10' left of Good For The Soul. Look for a triangular slab leads to a vertical crack with a shell-shaped dish above.
Description: Another boulder-start followed by a wide variety of interesting climbing with good gear.
    Pitch 1: Boulder up on the left side of a corner (green Alien in a slot). Reach around the corner to a vertical crack (again small gear or nut) and reach up high to the upper ledge. Place a nut or small gear in teh crack or reach higher and place a gold Camelot in the upper crack over the ledge. Step right and pull over onto the ledge on good holds. Step left and continue up past a small tree and on to the upper ledge. On the left side of the ledge there is an obvious weakness through the headwall. Climb to the top and walk right to the pine tree anchor. (60')

Gear: standard rack
Descent: rappel from the pine tree
History:  July 1,2012 - Jonathan Garlough & James Dickson
