1) Climb to “2500” feet

“You know, there is a little known feature to cross country flying, called Tower Enroute Control routes (TEC). They link approach control areas between certain city pairs, allowing the flight to be completed using tower communication (approach/departure) only. These routes are designed for short low level flights in a busy traffic environment. Tower enroute clearances are available in many places without filing a flight plan, by simply calling Clearance Delivery and requesting it.”
