Late Night Movie

Directions:  Hike down the climber's trail from the top of Pine Tree Eliminate less than 5 minutes to the area between Repentance and Remission. You may also park at the slab just before the turnaround at the top of Cathedral and walk directly into the woods on a trail that intersects with the climbers trail. Walk downhill and look for a piece of pink surveyor's tape and a small trail going off to the right. There is a medium sized pine tree near the cliff edge with green rappel slings and a rap ring up high. Rappel down from this tree to a good ledge about 150' down. The route starts 15 feet right of a right-facing corner, just beneath an obvious dike.
Description: Interesting climbing in a very different place. It's cool how the ground drops away as you climb out the dike to the right.
    Pitch 1: Make a moderate boulder move up to the start of the dike. Follow the dike right, hands on the dike and feet on the face, past 2 bolts to a short crack. Swing up to a stance and follow the dike up past another bolt. Step over the Remission chimney to a belay at a tree. Either 4th class up the dirty Remission gully to the top of the cliff or do the second pitch.

    Pitch 2: Step left out on the slab left of the belay tree above the Remission chimney and traverse left and up to the final moves on Devil's ByWay.

Gear: Draws, nuts and small cams.
Descent: N/A - you climb out.
History:  October 2000 - Pitch 1 George Hurley & Al Reid, Pitch 2 Al Hospers and George Hurley Summer 2002
