Thin Line

Directions:  This is the second bolted route on the right side of the crag located on a small 100 face. Look for an obvious chimney / shallow corner with a right angling rail at roughly 15 (bolt). The shallow chimney and leaning oak tree marks the start of the route.
Description: Difficult and thought provoking moves past the first and second bolt lead to a steep and unrelenting slab protected by two bolts and gear at the midway-point.
    Pitch 1: Climb past three bolts to a vertical crack/pocket (gear up to .75) midway up the slab. Continue straight up the slab on thin but fun chips and smears to a bolt. The route continues on to a nice balcony where you can get a well deserved shake before the final moves past the last bolt to a two bolt anchor (60)

Gear: Draws & small cams. A #1 (Red) Camelot can be placed in a slot at the beginning of the climb to protect the cruxy moves up to the first bolt.
Descent: rappel the route with a 60M rope
